A recent PCO familiarisation to Port Douglas, hosted by Port Douglas Incentives and Business Events Cairns & Great Barrier Reef (BEC&GBR), enabled participants to get a ‘sneak peak’ at the new Mossman Gorge Gateway Centre prior to its official opening, as well as attend the launch of the sparkling new marketplace-style Bazaar restaurant at the recently-rebranded and refurbished QT Resort Port Douglas.
Port Douglas Incentives is a collective of 15 incentive specialist suppliers who operate in the Port Douglas region. They were especially keen to promote their What’s New in Port Douglas, a list of creative activity options for conference and incentive planners.

En route to Port Douglas, the group visited the five star Thala Beach Lodge, before sunset cocktails and canapés in Sugar Wharf Park, on Port Douglas’ Dickson Inlet, followed by dessert at stylish local restaurant, Bistro 3 and an opportunity to meet all the Port Douglas Incentives members.
Day Two got off to a literal flying start with Breakfast with the Birds at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas followed by exciting helicopter transfers to Silky Oaks Lodge. The guided walk at Mossman Gorge Gateway Centre was a highlight as was cocktails in the spectacular rainforest location of Flames of the Forest.
Accommodation was provided at Sea Temple Resort, Sheraton Mirage and QT Port Douglas. Relaxing massages, a day trip to the reef with Quicksilver, cocktails at the new QT Port Douglas and dinner at Sheraton Mirage maintained the excitement factor and a finale brunch with an array of interesting tropical critters at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures ensured the memories would be lasting.
