The Clink Theatre

A short stroll from the centre of Port Douglas is the Clink Theatre, one of the oldest extant theatres in Queensland. It was built in the 1940s when many overseas servicemen, posted in Australia for the Second World War, brought life and bustle to this part of Queensland.

Starting the tour

Start from Macrossan Street.

Section 1:

Head south along Macrossan Street (coming from Wharf Street) and turn right down Grant Street (down the hill).


Macrossan Street is Port Douglas’s small but main street – whether you’re after unique gifts, one-off fashion, authentic souvenirs, great coffee or fine dining, you’ll find it all here!

Section 2:

Next, take the second left, down Mowbray Street.

The Clink Theatre is on the left-hand side, opposite the Port Douglas Community Hall.


The theatre was re-opened in 1992 by Mr Steve Bredhauer MLA.

Current events – including art, theatre and dance performances – are shown on the billboard outside. For more information call 0417750231.
