rex smeal parkRex Smeal Park is in the heart of Port Douglas, only a couple of minutes stroll from Macrossan Street and a range of hotels and restaurants.  The park can host event of any size and is the perfect canvas for you to create the wedding of your dreams.  The majestic fig tree is spectacular by evening and boasts great views over the coral sea.  A marquee can be an alternative, setup towards the palm trees and water on the outside edge of the park.
