Welcome to Port Douglas Central Hotel
The Central Hotel in Port Douglas, originally known as the North Queensland Hotel when it was established in 1886, is the oldest pub in the area. Over the years, it has seen its fair share of history and transformation.
1911, a devastating cyclone damaged the pub, leading to its reconstruction as the Central Hotel. This two-story structure, which still stands proudly today, forms the heart of the pub and carries with it a sense of history and character that’s truly unique.
