Port Douglas Sugar Wharf

The Port Douglas Sugar Wharf is one of the best locations for a wedding or a party in Port Douglas.  It’s a great location for your wedding ceremony or reception, and as a photographer I love it because it can be so diverse.  I have photographed so many weddings here, and all of them different.

Up until 1958 when the first road to Cairns was built, the wharf was used to ship sugar around Australia.  For a while it housed Ben Cropp’s Shipwreck Museum.  Now, it is the best place to spend an afternoon fishing – or to hold a wedding or a party.

The Sugar Wharf looks great with lots of styling or hardly any.  A few thing to keep in mind when planning your wedding here – it can be very hot earlier in the afternoon when the sun is bouncing off the whitewashed wall, and, stilettos will not be easy due to the distance between the boards on the deck.  Both things easily avoidable to make you wedding day on the Sugar Wharf fabulous.
