Built in 1878, the Central Hotel is the oldest pub in Port Douglas. Originally named the North Australian Hotel, it was damaged in the 1911 cyclone and was rebuilt as the Central Hotel, a two storey structure which still stands today as the very special and unique 'old' part of the pub.
She's a grand, old and much-loved Queenslander well worth a visit, with renovations adding open timber decks, giant sail structures and lush tropical landscaping alongside the 'old' pub.
The Central has three bars. The old pub's famous Public Bar is home to Keno and an air conditioned pokie room where you could get lucky on Jackpot Carnivale.
