The Lexus Long Lunch

When: Friday 9 August 2024 12 noon - 3pm
Where: Market Park, Wharf Street, Port Douglas

Celebrate the magnificent outdoor lifestyle of Tropical North Queensland at the coveted Port Douglas Long Lunch.

This annual favourite event will once again be staged under the magnificent canopy of Poinciana trees in Market Park, alongside St Mary's By The Sea, with ocean views to Dixons Inlet.

Popular Port Douglas restaurants, Salsa, La Cucina, Zinc & The Mexican, in collaboration with guest chefs Telina Menzies, Louis Tickeram, Adam D’Sylva and Julian Hills, will present a delectable three course menu accompanied by a three-hour beverage package of Estrella Damm Mediterranean Lager, Jansz Tasmania Premium Cuvee and Chaffey Bros. wines from the pristine Barossa & Eden Valleys in South Australia.

The event is perfectly completed with live entertainment and our celebrity MC Alastair McLeod to lead the proceedings throughout the afternoon.
