After three years we returned to Port Douglas for a two week relaxing holiday in July 2016. To our relief there had not been too many changes during that time although some restaurants, such as Finz, had closed and others, such as 2 Fish, had changed location. The Reef Marina is having a face lift and there are now more stores open in this area. Otherwise Port Douglas is as we remembered it.

A smaller market is held at the marina on a Wednesday afternoon.
