Another highlight of our Port Douglas trip. Similar setup to Tin Combined Club but executed much nicer; less busy being further out of town but well worth the walk/drive. The bartender reminded me of bartender in the movie Passengers,and I mean this as a big...More

Came here for a drink around sunset. Nice water views. But beware the sandflies! If you sit at a table on the grassy area you will be bitten. The itching lasted for days!

Hi Peter, You arrived at the Club between lunch and dinner which is probably why it "lacked atmosphere" as it was between dining periods. You came straight to the bar where i greeted you with a smile and served you a couple of drinks. You...More

The yacht club is a little away from main drag. There is Accom right next to it. But heaps of Accom within a 10 min walk. Just choose anything in port Douglas centre.

The Port Douglas Yacht Club is a unique and beautiful venue, located on the Dickson Inlet. Rick Preen our amazing new caterer has recently come on board, so do yourself a favour, come down have a Beer, Wine or Cocktail and sample Rick's wicked cuisine! If you're interested in holding function here, you have come to the right place. Send me an email and I will be sure to give you a call. Look forward to seeing you at "The Yachty"!
