Art & Culture

There’s a thriving art scene in Port Douglas that dabbles in a range of mediums from oils and watercolour to photography and sculpture and is inspired by the region’s natural beauty. Local indigenous artists are also prolific in offering contemporary and traditional artworks. There are many reputable galleries in and around town, and more affordable and unique pieces can be acquired at Port Douglas Markets on Sundays at Anzac Park on the waterfront.

The main venue for the performing arts is The Clink, a former courthouse and jail now home to Douglas Theatre Arts Group. Catch a live show or musical performance and visit one of Port’s secret bars.
