Marina Mirage

On the beautiful waterfront at Port Douglas you can fish, shop, have a relaxing afternoon drink and watch the boats as they sail in and out of port.

The Marina Mirage, with its waterfront restaurants and air-conditioned arcade, is the perfect place for seaside dining, fishing and shopping. Take off on a cruise to the Great Barrier Reef or catch fish in the mangrove creek across the port.

The Dickson Inlet flows into the marina from the Coral Sea and since the early days of European settlement, has been a busy natural harbour. Once a fishing village with trade routes for gold and sugar, today the port is home to luxury yachts, catamarans and sailboats.

In the peak tourist season and Christmas holidays the Marina Mirage is the town’s social hotspot. During the other times of year, the marina is busy in the early morning and late afternoon when boats come in and out from their excursions to the Great Barrier Reef.

You will find the biggest reef tour operators at the Marina Mirage. Here you can purchase your tour and stop for a coffee or early morning breakfast before you cruise out onto the water for the day.

Shop for souvenirs such as unique Australian beachwear, crafts and art made by local Aboriginal people, jewellery made from local opals or a small memento detailing regional fish species.

Hop on a pontoon boat and head over to the mangrove forest across from the marina for some fishing. Don’t be tempted to swim in the water because crocodiles have been known to live here!

Enjoy a day of exploring the area on the Bally Hooley, a historic steam train that tours around the town every Sunday.

The Marina Mirage is in easy walking or biking distance from the central shopping area. It is located on the west side of the Port Douglas peninsula. Taxis and shuttle buses can transport you from your accommodation and there is free parking and public amenities. Most of the shops and facilities close around sunset.
