Eating & drinking in Port Douglas
Port Douglas has a huge choice of places to eat and drink, and with most of them along the main street of Macrossan Street it is easy to go for a walk and check them all out. Some more places can be found at the Port Douglas Marina, a short stroll from the town centre.
Breakfast with the birds
Rainforest Habitat does an excellent brekky, known as 'Breakfast With The Birds'. A big buffet of tropical fruits and all the other breakfast goodies set under a large sail on which all shapes of birds walk around, together with the rising sun providing a very artistic shadow play. Lots of other birds fly around within the breakfast area so guard your breakfast closely as the birds know how to help themselves. This award winning wildlife park is easy to find on the corner of the town's entrance road and the Cook Highway, and easy to get to on the local bus. And after brekky you can see koalas, cassowaries, crocodiles and plenty of other animals all in one day!
The Port Douglas Courthouse Hotel has been a favourite watering hole for many years, it is easily found at the end of the main street at the harbour end, just across the street from Anzaz Park where the Sunday markets are held. Many nights there is live music at this pub, the Sunday sessions are lively and they do some well priced meals here too.
Flames of the forest
The Iron Bar is a very popular place for a drink or a meal in Port Douglas. The interior is entirely made up of rough timber, rusty roofing iron etc. but this all adds to the character. This place also runs cane toad races several times a week and serves Canetoad Lager, a tasty boutique beer. This place is easy to find in the main street towards the harbour end.
A very pleasant setting for some dinner, lunch, or just a coffee or a beer is the Port Douglas Marina, a short stroll from the town centre.
