  • History of Port Douglas

    Port Douglas was founded in 1877 to give the gold miners in the western outback a good seaport within reasonable distance to import their equipment and provisions, and export their bounty. For decades Port Douglas was a sleepy fishing village until 1984 when the international airport opened in Cairns. Two years later Christopher Skase built the Sheraton Mirage, a five star resort. The town was becoming a lot more popular until it was stalled by the 1989 pilot’s strike, when suddenly no one was coming. Eventually Port Douglas recovered and has been a popular holiday destination ever since.
