For more information visit http://www.asiatravel.com Port Douglas is a town in Far North Queensland, Australia, approximately 70 km (40 mi) north of Cairns. Its permanent population was 4,772 at the time of the 2011 census.The town's population can often double, however, with the influx of tourists during the peak tourism season May--September. The town is named in honour of former Premier of Queensland, John Douglas. Port Douglas developed quickly based on the mining industry. Other parts of the area were established with timber cutting occurring in the area surrounding the Daintree River and with settlement starting to occur on lots around the Mossman River by 1880. Previous names for the town included Terrigal, Island Point, Port Owen and Salisbury. The town is situated adjacent to two World Heritage areas, the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. Port Douglas was No. 3 on Australian Traveller magazine's list of 100 Best Towns In Australia.[1] The Port Douglas township was established in 1877 after the discovery of gold at Hodgkinson River by James Venture Mulligan. It grew quickly, and at its peak Port Douglas had a population of 12,000 and 27 hotels. With the construction of the Mulligan Highway it serviced towns as far away as Herberton. When the Kuranda Railway from Cairns to Kuranda was completed in 1891, the importance of Port Douglas dwindled along with its population. A cyclone in 1911 which demolished all but two buildings in the town also had a significant impact. At its nadir in 1960 the town, by then little more than a fishing village, had a population of 100. In the mid-1980s, tourism boomed in the region after investor Christopher Skase financed the construction of the world-class Sheraton Mirage. Kitesurfing is popular at the southern end of Four Mile Beach, particularly during the winter months when trade winds blow from the South. Port Douglas is near the Great Barrier Reef. Numerous companies run daily trips from the marina to the outer reef and the Low Isles for scuba diving and snorkelling. Port Douglas is also well known for its many restaurants, golf courses, and five star resorts.

WATER DOWN UNDER The Great Artesian Basin Story
 
32:43
Stretching from Cape York in the north, down to Dubbo and across to Coober Pedy, the Great Artesian Basin covers almost a quarter of the Australian continent, and it contains enough water to cover the world over. Much remains to be known about this valuable recourse that has enabled life in inland Australia to develop over thousands of years. Water Down Under is the vast and rich story of the Basin, told by the people who live on the Basin it self, and presented by National Geographic's Hayden Turner.

Adelaide River - Northern Territory - Environment Centre NT
 
00:14
Nature Territory The Territory is renowned for its big rivers full of barramundi and crocodiles, its vast deserts and woodlands that are home to unique and amazing wildlife, and its shallow seas are a refuge for dugong and sea turtles. Globally significant conservation values The Top End is the heart of the world's largest relatively intact tropical savanna woodlands and grasslands, which stretches 3000 km between Cairns and Broome across Northern Australia. Patches of rainforest are seen along river banks and in coastal areas, and shelter in the deep sandstone gorges of the Arnhem Plateau. Free-flowing rivers carry life giving waters through the long hot Dry Season from May to November. When the monsoon rains come, they rise in flood to inundate millions of hectares of floodplain wetlands. The floods re-set the clock for many species of wildlife. The Arafura Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria are shallow tropical seas that scientists have rated as being the least disturbed shallow tropical seas in the world. They are home to six species of sea turtles, and provide a stronghold for these beautiful animals that are threatened in many other parts of their range worldwide. Wildlife and ecosystems at risk But the Territory's wildlife and habitats face rising pressures, and need your help. Habitat loss is primary driver of wildlife destruction. On the land this is caused by weeds, wildfire, feral animals, land clearing and over-grazing by cattle. The extinction crisis sweeping small and medium sized mammals is likely due to both habitat loss and degradation, as well as predation by cats, with even our best managed areas like Kakadu National Park not safe refuges. The Territory sorely needs a network of protected areas across the land and river catchments that effectively conserves wildlife and habitat, supports the conservation economy, provides jobs to Indigenous Rangers, and stores carbon. Just 3.5% of the Territory is in National Parks and other reserves managed by the Territory Parks and Wildlife Service. Effective on-ground management and strong partnerships have improved landscape management and turned around the loss of some species. For example, a gradual recovery of Gouldian finch populations is happening through better management of fire and exclusion of cattle from feeding areas. Millions of hectares of vegetation that was previously burned every year or two by hot wildfires is now being managed through cool-season burns to reinstate vegetation mosaics with differing fire histories. The removal of cattle and feral herbivores such as camels, donkeys or horses from riverbanks, springs and wetlands has cut erosion and helped wildlife to return and thrive. In the marine environment, habitats and wildlife are damaged by bottom trawling, sewage and port pollution, agricultural run-off, ghost nets, and over-fishing by recreational anglers close to Darwin. But new threats are rapidly emerging, such as the risk of oil spills from rigs in the Arafura and Timor Seas, seabed mining and a new port and heavy industry on Maria Island in Limmen Bight. That's why we're seeking a science-based network of marine parks, stronger action to cut sewage and port pollution, and a ban on seabed mining. Despite the efforts of many landholders and agencies, most of our amazing waterways and wetlands are infested with aquatic ,weeds such as mimosa and para grass. Buffalo, pigs, camels and feral horses erode and pollute them as well. Top End rivers, which are almost completely free of introduced fish, are now at risk from tilapia, an exotic fish from Africa. The development of large scale irrigation threatens some rivers, particularly the Daly, upper Roper and Keep Rivers, and there are long standing plans to dam the Adelaide River for a new water supply for greater Darwin. Plans by the federal Coalition to make the north the foodbowl of Asia add to these pressures.
