The cane toad race caught our eye as we walked past, was different & funny. Had a drink while we saw the show.

Decent meals at good prices - very fast and efficient service. Steak was a little under but still acceptable. The bug and prawn linguine was lovely.

You know a bar is authentic when you walk into an area and you feel you are a tourist, insofar as you are almost intruding on a very local place. I went upstairs in the Iron Bar, and the atmosphere was amazing; the locals enjoying...More

Whether you’re in town for a wedding, a work-do, or a roadtrip north, no self-respecting blow-in could stake their claim on this beachside village without having tackled a T-bone, kissed a canetoad, or mislaid hours on the dance floor at the IronBar. Quite frankly, you haven’t been to Port Douglas if you haven’t been to the IronBar. The IronBar is pretty much synonymous with “ripper of a good time”, whether as a restaurant, bar, state-of-the-art gaming lounge or mecca for late night shenanigans. By day, a popular dining destination, the IronBar’s steakhouse menu features a lip smacking range of your favourite Aussie pub eats. An esky-cool bar provides welcome relief from the tropics, with a range of Australian and imported beers. Expect the unexpected after dinner, as the IronBar transforms into a battleground for the Far North’s most virulent pest-hello cane toad racing! Retreat to the cool of upstairs' sports bar and gaming lounge till the wee hours or dance the night away!
