Went to Wednesday markets, very sad, don't bother. Wednesday Wings special at 4pm was sold out by 4:15 so missed out on them. The house beers were average at best. Perhaps they should concentrate on one thing at a time.

Went there for their midweek markets and was disappointed, only a handful of traders although the best was handmade pop up cards, my wife bought one to send to our daughter in law next month. Otherwise there's only your usual souvenirs shops and some restaurants.

Some nice cafes to sit at and view the water front whilst waiting for tours to depart. Some of the staff at the restaurants/cafes looked bored and tired (before lunch time!) Better buys for souvenirs at Presenting Port Douglas, 51-57 Macrossan St Port Douglas.

As far as Marina's go this place is quite good. All the big tourist boats leave from here and if you like wandering around looking at all the yachts etc it's quite good. But as far as shopping is concerned, stick to the main street....More

The Marina is an old ikon of Porr Douglas. Remember MR SKase - one of his projects. It's a nice Marina. Good outlook from the restaurants

This a good place to come and eat/drink and view the array of tourist craft, sport fishing boats and a few super yachts. Good people watching as well, plus a quirky market on Wednesdays
