About Melaleuca Port Douglas

Take in ocean views as balmy breezes rustle overhead leaves at Melaleuca Port Douglas on Wharf Street. Boasting a fabulous alfresco courtyard with three giant mango trees forming a canopy above diners, as well as a chic indoor restaurant space, this fine diner combines relaxed and casual service with a Modern Australian menu to set the mood for a memorable meal. Visit for lunch and delve into choices like seared Tasmanian scallops to start, with maple roasted bush smoked bacon, sweetcorn purée and crispy leek; while those dining at night under fairy lights may be enticed by slow-braised lamb shank, buttered potatoes, minted pea purée, baby carrots and red wine jus. Vegetarians opt for gnocchi, mushrooms, pumpkin purée, toasted pine nuts, crispy basil leaves, truffle oil and Parmesan.

Beautiful food, people and location
We had a stunning lunch recently the food, drinks, staff and venue were perfect. Thank you to all the team.


Exceptional! If you appreciate fine dining, beautiful surrounds and attention to detail then Melaleuca is the restaurant for you!
One of the very best dining experiences I have ever had!! I enjoyed a 3 course meal with wine pairing whilst my husband had a 2 course meal. Barramundi, pork belly, oysters, scallops… trio dessert! Delectable!


Nice dinning. Great venue.


“The” place to dine in Port Douglas.
Service, meals, local beers and alcohol, all so well done here. The bugs were amazing, the barramundi fillet was one of the best we’ve had and the setting under the mango tree is just perfect.


Simply amazing - best dining experience



Exceptional in every sense
