Tell us your favourite local place to eat/drink that is not your own.

Salsa Bar & Grill is my go to place whenever I have the chance to escape to Port Douglas.  The menu is fabulous, the service consistent, and it never disappoints.

What's your favourite local place or activity to unwind?

Given the chance (and it doesn’t happen often!) I am very happy to unwind, at home, in my casuals, watching Netflix!

Name your favourite unique local product or produce and why you like it.

I have many and our weekly visit to Rusty’s for fresh local fruit and veg is a highlight, however if I had to nominate one, it would be Coral Coast Seafoods for the best fresh range of seafood and exceptional customer service.  Dom is one of our favourite local suppliers.

Where is your favourite local place to shop?

Rusty’s, for the food, the coffee, the fresh produce and my passion for supporting local business.

Name and recommend a local business that has given you outstanding service.

The Chambers is fabulous!  We go there often for the ‘main event’ (grazing board), “it's soooo good!’, and service is outstanding.
