THE BOAT TRAIN

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

• The lady Dou­glas was built in 1989 and fer­ried pas­sen­gers from the Ma­rina Mi­rage to St Crispins. The train line was re-opened from St Crispins to the Ma­rina, then pro­vid­ing a round trip. • The Ma­rina-St Crispins run is half an hour on the train and 45 min­utes on the Lady Dou­glas • The Lady Dou­glas cruises along at a leisurely 5-6 knots • It can carry up to 50 peo­ple each way (and one small dog and a pair of ever present spar­rows) • On Sun­days, the Lady Dou­glas will have two de­par­tures – 10:45 am, lunch at Bally Hoo­ley (St Crispins), then back to the Reef Ma­rina at 1:45 pm. And then at noon, re­turn­ing to the Ma­rina at 3:15 pm. Bev­er­age and fruit plat­ter in­cluded on the Lady Dou­glas along with his­tor­i­cal com­men­tary.

It was an amaz­ing time in Port Dou­glas, very ex­cit­ing. And here we are bring­ing back the old Lady Dou­glas, and the Bally Hoo­ley, and with the new Choo Choos as well
