The Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival……..Port Douglas Accommodation

Port Douglas held its inaugural Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival as part of the Major Events program of both Events Queensland and Cairns Regional Council.  The Great Barrier Reef Marathon festival is locally operated by Port Douglas Events Management and has attracted runners from every state in Australia and 14 countries, making up over 500 participants. 
The Great Barrier Reef Marathon festival included a 74km Ultra run (only the really crazy runners participated) , a 21 km Half Marathon,  a 10km run and a Fundy 5000 5km run.  These events took place  on Saturday 12th November 2011 and are being seen as a pre curser to the International Solar Eclipse Marathon which is being held in Port Douglas in November in 2012.
What a fantastic day to be involved in.  Mick and I as Mangers at Nautilus Holiday Apartments were only too happy to be volunteers and help organize this wonderful day.  We were roped in during the last few weeks of the event when the organizers were a bit overrun with jobs.  Mick and I organized the 8 water stations which provided runners with much needed rehydration throughout their runs.  Apart from all the pre preparation, this meant an early start for us on Saturday morning 5am, checking that the local volunteer businesses had set up and had all the necessary gear.  These stations not only provided water but the volunteers were there to cheer on and encourage the runners, as you can imagine in such long and grueling events even a small amount of encouragement can provide a huge psychological boost.  By all accounts the volunteers had a fantastic day, it was long and hot but everyone we spoke to said they would be back next year “with bells on”.

The first runners, the Ultras started in Cairns at approx 5 am.  There was a group of  approx 45 runners in this event , the first runner to the finish line arrived at approx 12 noon and the last runner arrived at the finish line at approx 4pm.    The ultra course was diverse and obviously very very challenging,  it covered hills, road, rainforest and beach but according to some of the participants was one of the best organized, well marked and well manned courses they had done. 
The 21Km (half marathon) attracted the most runners.  This was the Steve Moneghetti  inaugural run.  Steve is the ambassador of this event, he ran the event and came in first which was no surprise, Nick Carling a local Port Douglas athlete came in third.     Steve mentioned that although he is now retired he couldn`t miss an opportunity to be a part of something so special in such a beautiful place as Port Douglas.
The 10km run started at 6.45am and attracted a field of approx 100 runners.    Many of these runners were attempting the 10k for the first time.  A group of ladies from Vision Personal Training at Bundall on the Gold Coast entered the event as a team, they hired a house in Port Douglas and made a mini holiday of the event.  Michelle the director of Vision Personal Training ran the Ultra and then attended the after party looking like she had had a day on Four Mile Beach; she even had her high heels on!!!
I participated in the in the Fundy 5000 (5kms), this was for the novice runner or for those of us who aspire to bigger and better things next time!! You could walk, run, push a pram, or even ride a scooter (non motorized).  Like a lot of the 60 or so participants I ran this without training (or very little) with a few walking spells in between and was happy just to finish.   The “Fundy” raised funds for our local charity here in Port Douglas KIND, this charity assists local children who have terminal or debilitating illnesses.  

The Marathon was finished off on Saturday night with a dinner at local restaurant Lure.  It was fantastic to see so many of the participants enjoy the beautiful meal provided by Lure and to enjoy hearing some of the stories about the day.  Steve Moneghetti spoke on the night.  Steve is a very relaxed genuine sort of person who has run in events all over the world.  He was very impressed with the organization of the day, he loves the Port Douglas region and the people here and he was honored to be ambassador to such a great event which will only attract more and more people to this beautiful part of the world. 
Like any inaugural event there will need to be some tweaking here and there but listening to many of the participants it was a very well run (for want of a better word), well attended event in one of the most beautiful places in Australia, Port Douglas and Mick and Sue Managers at Nautilus Holiday Apartments are very happy to have been involved in this wonderful event and who knows, next year it may be the 10k run for me!!!

Port Douglas Fishing Adventures with Paul

Fishing in Port Douglas

Reef fishing in Port Douglas is a must but lets not forget fishing the Port Douglas inlet… During March Nautilus Port Douglas Holiday Apartments had the pleasure of hosting one of Victoria`s most avid fishermen as a guest. Paul drove from Bendigo in Victoria (approx 3,500 km ) with his fishing boat and esky. He stopped along the way at a few good fishing holes before arriving at Nautilus Holiday Apartments in Port Douglas ready for a wonderful fishing and sightseeing adventure. So keen is Paul on his fishing that he headed off on his own to Port Douglas , his partner and a friend travelled in style (by plane) and arrived a day later.

Like any good fisherman on arrival to Port Douglas he had a few good stories to tell, one which involved a croc which was a little too close for comfort, the other about ones that got away!!

Not only does Paul enjoy a day fishing but he is also loves the Port Douglas way of life including trips to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation. Most mornings Paul loaded up his boat with gear for a morning or a day`s fishing and off he went leaving the girls to sleep or shop or just relax. Paul was good enough to take the complex manager out for a mornings fishing, they said “don`t worry about dinner we have it covered”, no such luck on that day we ate out !! The next day he took the girls out for a trip up the inlet, not too many fish were caught but they had a bit of fun got caught in the rain, not uncommon at this time of year.

Like most fishermen Paul loves a beer and what better way to spend the day with a rod in one hand and a beer in the other. Also a keen amateur photographer during the stay he took some wonderful photos of our beautiful region. As his partner Vicky said “it’s not all just about the fishing you
know” there`s just so much to see and do here.

Port Douglas Reef Charters

Port Douglas fishing is fantastic, there are various options for Port Douglas reef fishing trips you can take, full day or half day with a very experienced guide you will be amazed at the amount of information you can learn. You can go to the reef or up the inlet. Just check out the tides and the weather for the day and off you go!
During his stay with us Paul took some wonderful photos of the local area.

After 6 nights at Nautilus Holiday Apartments the girls were off home on the plane and Paul was heading back via a few tried and tested fishing spots. Everyone had a wonderful holiday and we hope to see them all again soon in Port Douglas, our beautiful part of the world.

Nautilus Port Douglas Resort are happy to help any traveller book any fishing charter to fish Port Douglas Reef or Inlet. ASk about our Great Barrier Reef fishing and accommodation packages or click here and make your own.

What’s happening at Nautilus Holiday Apartments Port Douglas in February?

February is traditionally a quiet month in Port Douglas.
The weather is really nice at the moment and a day at the reef would be ideal but we are taking the opportunity to do some works around Nautilus Holiday Apartments while it’s quiet.
Our first project is currently underway, all our rooms are having dado boards installed in the living areas of the apartments. Our rattan furniture is sometimes pushed up against the walls in the apartments and this will prevent marks and paint being chipped from the walls. We have secured the services of a very well qualified tradesman (my Dad) and his helpful assistant and manager of Nautilus Apartments Mick to undertake the works.
The second project for the month which will start on the 21st February is re-paving of the pool area and erecting a new front fence. TNQ Services Port Douglas are taking up the challenge of this job and we are looking forward seeing a wonderful end result. This may require the removal of some trees from the pool area………more to come later.
The third project is to replace outside security doors on each apartment.
We will supply photos as the projects progress!!
