Explore Our Rich Tradition
Founded in 1985, Port Douglas Yacht Club takes great pride in the exceptional leisure activities and fine amenities we have today.
But it wasn't always like it is now.
From inception in '85 it took nine years before the club house was built. The official opening was on December 4th, 1993 opened by Sir James Hardy OBE.
Back then the club only opened on a race day and some Friday and Saturday nights. Members would cook their own meals in the kitchen as there were no staff employed. It was all volunteers in the kitchen and behind the bar.
One of the first extensions was the roof facing Closehaven Marina. Members made a $30 donation per sheet of steel and were rewarded with the right to put their boat name on the timbers. A few more names have been added over the years.
Since we started, the Yacht Club has undergone a significant expansion and renovation of its facilities in order to upgrade the experience for members and guests. We are committed to meeting and surpassing the needs of our valued members.
Port Douglas Yacht Club prides itself in providing exceptional service for all our members and guests in compliance with our objective to promote, encourage and foster the sport of yachting.
Nestled amid the historical backdrop of Port Douglas, the Coral Sea and Daintree National Park, the club strives to provide excellent service and amenities for our members and guests’ enjoyment.
