Eat & Drink


Port Douglas offers its visitors an exciting array of dining and entertainment experiences.

Let’s start with dining: Port Douglas restaurants are among the best in Australia and have a great variety of dining experiences for you to enjoy.

The village’s seaside location lends itself to ensuring that many restaurants specialize in the ocean’s bounty, however, you can also choose from Mediterranean, Mexican, Chinese or a real Aussie steak and BBQ with kangaroo and crocodile. From fast food to elegant dining, there is a style to suit any taste.

To unwind and relax, why not visit one of the many day-spas at Port, where you can truly refresh and rejuvenate. Afterwards, one of Port Douglas’ unique galleries and museums will provide a cultural element to your tropical stay.
