Port Douglas Builders

The Port Douglas township was originally established in 1877 after the discovery of gold at Hodgkinson River by James Venture Mulligan. It grew quickly, and at its peak Port Douglas had a population of 12,000 and 27 hotels.

You can find beautiful Port Douglas located just an hour north of Cairns (approx 60kms). The drive north of Cairns on the Captain Cook Highway has excellent coastal scenery.

Port Douglas is the closest main land town to the Great Barrier Reef and the beautiful world heritage rainforests of Daintree and Cape Tribulation.

World renowned as a getaway for the rich and famous – it’s also a highly prized holiday destination for Australian families, wanting to enjoy beach time, fishing, diving and exploring the Great Barrier Reef.

Here you will find long beaches, great shopping and a variety of over 50 restaurants as well as a wide range of holiday accommodation.

With an enormous array of activities to indulge in, it would be hard to find a dull moment – even lazing around the beautiful four mile beach is a delightful experience.

No matter when you visit Tropical North Queensland, the weather will be warm. In the cooler months of June – October, temperatures range from an average overnight low of 17°C to a high of 29°C. During the remainder of the year the temperatures range from 19°C to 32°C.

Census Statistics

Figures show that the Douglas Shire had a permanent population of 11,275 at 30 June 2004. Though growth rates in individual years have been quite variable, Shire population has grown at a long term average of just over 4% per annum to almost double over the last 20 years. Periods of high growth took place during the early and late 1980s, and to a lesser extent in 1993 and 1994.

Since 1994, growth rates in Port Douglas Queensland have been more subdued, averaging 3.1% per annum. Growth from 1989 to 1991 was particularly low, affected by the economic downturn brought about by the 1989 pilots’ dispute. These indicate strong functional linkages between tourism growth and population growth. Port Douglas itself had an estimated resident population of 4,305 at 30 June 2003, up from 3,030 as at 30 June 1996. This indicates growth in Port Douglas averaging 4.2% per annum over these 7 years.
