It is a cliché, but Port Douglas is the place where the rich and the famous come to ‘get away from it all’ in Australia.
Port Douglas’s reputation started in the 50’s when a first cousin of the queen settled in Port Douglas and set up a fine dining restaurant (Nautilus Restaurant). Her visiting friends and entourage started the tradition of visiting nobility and celebrities and since then Port Douglas has never looked back.
Port Douglas over the decades and to present day has been host to presidents, pop stars, divas, rock stars, actors, millionaires and billionaires all gravitating to Port Douglas.
Like moths around a flame they are attracted to not only the climate and the beauty of Port Douglas, but despite being a million miles away from everything, they can still dine on top class cuisine and stay in immaculately appointed accommodation.
The restaurants in Port Douglas boast Michelin Star chefs trained by the royalty of chefdom with influences from around the world, using the best of fresh local produce.
