We walked around Port Douglas and headed for the Marina and chanced upon the Yacht Club - a small unimposing building with tables and chairs set on the grass, close to the water - just the place to stop and have a leisurely drink

This was probably my favourite meal in Port Douglas. It is very relaxed, you pay at the counter, the setting is great and the food is delicious. I had the fish and chips and the pavlova; both fresh and packed with flavour! One of the...More

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"!
