Situated in the heart of Port Douglas and nestled within tall coconut palm trees, St Mary's by the sea is an historic 1880 fully restored non-denominational chapel with breathtaking views of the Coral Sea. This iconic, heritage-listed chapel features stained glass windows, traditional wooden pews and a church bell. The simple gabled exterior features traditional lancet windows and is just as charming as the interior.
St Mary's by the Sea can accommodate up to 100 guests. The chapel is air-conditioned, and can also be wheelchair-accessible with advance notice.
Ceremony times on Fridays and Saturdays are 10am, 12pm, 2pm or 4pm.
Please note that all bookings are strictly for 1.5 hours. For example, if you are getting married at 2pm, you will have access to the chapel from 1.30pm to 3pm.
