Port Douglas has the feel of a sleepy fishing village, yet is a playground for movie stars and royalty. With average winter temperatures of 26º it’s the perfect place to lose a week during the cold months of the year.

A melting pot of Australia’s best experiences, great food, live music, diving, reef fishing, adrenalin sports, shops galore, Sunday markets, golf and beaches for miles.  You’ll also experience once of Australia’s finest coastal drives from the Cairns Airport, 50 minutes away.

We can’t wait to share our tropical wedding week with you in October next year, for more details on accommodation, tours, maps and getting to and from Port, join us here over the next few months as we update this page with how to make the most of your stay in paradise…

Please email us to advise if you are coming along, the numbers in your group and ages of any kids – Thanks!
