Party In Paradise As Port Douglas Ring In 2013

There will be plenty of food, entertainment and fireworks as Port Douglas welcomes 2013 and Tourism Port Douglas and Daintree (TPDD) executive officer Doug Ryan said there was no better place to be.

 
PRLog - Dec. 19, 2012 - “Port Douglas has long been a favourite for revellers. Its relaxed charm is a major drawcard but the fact there is so much people can do around New Year’s celebrations is the real bonus.”

Mr Ryan said partygoers could expect all the bells and whistles that a Port Douglas New Year’s Eve celebration is known for and more.

“The town is buzzing with people, there is great nightlife and fantastic revelry. Visitors mix with locals and everyone has a great time.”

The Port Douglas sky will light up as the clock strikes 8.30pm and midnight. The fireworks display, organised by the Port Douglas Chamber of Commerce and supported by Cairns Regional Council and local business’, will take place adjacent to The Combined Club at 8.30pm and at Anzac Park on the Port Douglas foreshore at midnight. It will provide revellers throughout the village centre a spectacular explosion of colour to mark the end of 2012.

“It is great to see so many local businesses pulling out all the stops for New Year’s celebrations and interest in these events has been strong. Salsa Bar & Grill has been booked for months,” Mr Ryan added.

Mr Ryan said there was still accommodation available but urged those considering a short break to Port Douglas to finalise their plans sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

Snapshot of What’s On:

Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas has pulled out all the stops with two different all-inclusive dinner packages available. With live entertainment, The Lagoons New Years Eve package is perfect for all the family, while Il Pescatore offers an indulgent five course degustation menu.

QT Port Douglas has organised a poolside barbecue on December 31 with New Year’s Eve celebrations kicking off that night with another barbecue at Estilo with a DJ on the decks. Dinner is also available in Bazaar. A recovery party will held the next day with a pig on a spit, chef carved pork and easy beats on the deck with jugs of infused iced tea and specials on frozen pina coladas, Peroni and ciders available.

On The Inlet is offering a full a la carte menu so why not splurge on a seafood platter for two. Beautifully presented, nothing marks a special occasion more than fresh crab, prawns and fish, while overlooking the water of Dickson Inlet.

2 Fish Restaurant is also offering a special New Year’s Eve menu and what better way to ring in the new year than with local caught tiger prawns, tuna sashimi, pan seared Morton Bay bugs, crispy soft shell crab, and fresh barramundi. With platters to share, dinner will be one of great company, superb food and friendly hospitality.

Sea Temple Port Douglas’ New Year’s Eve celebrations are bigger and better than ever with two fantastic options to see in 2013.  For those with families (or those planning on heading into town), there is an early buffet dinner from 5pm to 6.30pm. Otherwise, why not see in the new year with the Seven Deadly Sins Degustation Dinner featuring a course for each sin. The dinner includes live entertainment, optional matched wines and a night of true Sea Temple decadence.

Zinc Restaurant & Bar has pulled out all the stops to bring one of the finest five course degustation menus to the table. With dishes such as banana prawn and buffalo mozzarella salad in spicy gazpacho, local farmed barramundi and black lip mussel nicoise salad and apple and crème patissiere galette, this dinner will be sure to mark the occasion. Dinner also includes a glass of sparkling wine on arrival.

Reservations are essential.
