Additional Notes Located 70km north of Cairns, Port Douglas was established in the 1800s as part of the gold rush in Far North Queensland. During the turn of the century, the Port Douglas population swelled with the gold rush, but the area turned to sugar cane when the rail line from the goldfields was constructed, bypassing Port Douglas for Cairns. The town retained a small population until the 1980s, when a real estate boom in the area lead to Port Douglas’ reinvention as a resort town.
