Port Douglas is traditionally where the famous come to be ignored. It’s the top Barrier Reef launch point, cosmopolitan and swanky, but typically Australian and down-to-earth too.....

.... For the low-down on golf courses and game fishing join Geoff as he feeds the tame grouper (which are fish if you didn’t know) down at his popular On the Inlet Seafood Restaurant at 5 p.m. each day. Julie, meanwhile, seems unimpressed by her own considerable interior design flair and organisational skills. All three houses under the Willow banner are as exquisite as they are unique. Private and open-plan, they are decorated in smooth Mediterranean colours with polished sandstone floors, bright rugs, woven willow couches piled with Versace cushions and dark violet bolsters. There are antiques, in-house water pools, giant metal sea-animal sculptures, massive and colourful photographs on the walls, marble-topped kitchens. The louver walls in the dining pavilions fold flat back so you can sit at the table and dip your toes in the pool. Jade lawns surround, verandahs drip bougainvillea. Basically, House of Willow is putting on the Ritz and is well prepared for the next Vogue shoot when it happens. Watch the tiny honey-eaters make their hanging nest at the back door, walk right to the beach and left to cosmopolitan Port Douglas, both 1 minute away.
