THE TIN SHED “A Taste of Paradise”

WITH a view that is nothing but pure magic The Tin Shed Community and Sports Club in Port Douglas is not only giving back to the Douglas Shire with monthly community grants, local club endorsements and weekly raffles but it is also the perfect spot to be on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Watching the boats sail by and enjoying a drink or two while neighbourhood bands serenade you with the classics. Add to that the perfect combination of fresh prawns bought in by local fisherman and matched with the coldest beer in the North and you have a winning combination. 

The Tin Shed has been a Port Douglas watering hole for over 50 years and continues to be a favourite with locals and visitors alike, the fresh take by newly elected general manager Kyle Livingston has seen this club step up from novice restaurant eatery to fine dining contender all whilst keeping the humble prices and charm that guests have come to expect from this well-established venue. The staff are the real heroes of this story, sticking firm to the belief that every guest should be treated like family, and making sure that every meal and beer is served with the character and warmth that guests have come to expect while enjoying this spectacular setting. 

This not-so-secret establishment really does hold some hidden gems with the freshest of seafood featuring heavily on the menu at a fraction of the cost to competitors. A standout dish to enjoy on the huge dining deck is the seafood chowder served in a crusty sourdough. The calamari shouldn’t be missed with green tea noodle salad adorned with hand cut strips of squid. The seafood tower for two is always a welcome treat as guests depart the local charters and look for a bite to eat, starring bugs, mussels, smoked salmon, crab, fresh and cooked prawns and the freshest of fish, the seafood tower at the Tin Shed changes daily to feature only the best of local Port Douglas produce, straight from the Coral Sea. When the ocean is not your calling, the classic bistro options are sure to keep you salivating with sirloin, caesars, spring rolls and so much more. You must add The Tin Shed on your to do list when visiting the North to really appreciate what the Douglas Shire has to offer. 

The Tin Shed is a walk-in venue only taking limited bookings each night for any larger party, so get in early to secure your spot and while you wait for the kitchen to fire up, why not take a minute to enjoy a handcrafted cocktail in the upstairs lounge bar or have a punt in the gaming room. 

An absolute standout in FNQ’s dining scene The Tin Shed Douglas and Community Sports Club will delight your tastebuds and remind you to once again make the trip up the range to the beautiful little beachside town of Port Douglas.
