Port Douglas was founded in 1877 as the port town for the Hodgkinson River Goldfields. It went through a few names before it was named Port Douglas in honour of former Queensland premier John Douglas.

Port Douglas was a booming townsite during the gold rush years before its decline in the late 1800's. In the early 1980's, Port Douglas had a revival from the sleepy fishing village it had become. It became a popular destination for holidays during the winter months due to its excellent year round climate. Today the tourist industry brings visitors from all over the world, drawn not only to the world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef and Rainforests but to the delightful village of Port Douglas and the many attractions in the region.
