Anzac Park, Port Douglas: 4 reviews and 11 photos


Are you on a budget but want to view the passing parade of boats? Suggest head firstly to the supermarket and stock up on a tasty range of cold treats and then head on down to Anzac Park and grab a seat as close to the waters edge as possible and then sit back and let them all roll past you. You can even partake in the little local custom of ?sundowning? at a fraction of the cost of the nearby hotels and restaurants.

Suggest you arrive around 3.30pm and before the daily tidal wave of cruise boats returning to the nearby marina. Maybe before then head to St Mary?s By The Sea and reflect on a quieter time.

About the photos:
1. Quaint St Marys originally built 1880, partly destroyed by a cyclone and relocated in 1988 to current location.
2. ANZAC park seen from the water
