Port Douglas Historic Attractions
Take a look at the Clink Theatre. Formerly the Mossman courthouse and jail, it was removed and remodelled in 1992 and named the 'Clink' after the jail near Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. Today the theatre hosts a variety of shows throughout the year, including plays, drama workshops and live music performances.

In 1986, Old Saint Mary's was the only church left in Port Douglas, and in danger of being demolished. Thanks to the action of the "Save the Church" group and, later, the Port Douglas Restoration Society, Old St Mary's Church was relocated by the sea.
This traditional wooden church has been beautifully renovated, and features a huge glass altar window which offers breathtaking views of the Coral Sea and rainforest-clad mountains. Its beauty makes it a popular wedding location for couples from all over the world.
All funds raised from weddings, christenings, concerts, funerals and donations are used for the maintenance and improvement of St Mary's by the Sea and other historical restoration projects.
