Stylish and Affordable

While Port Douglas offers the perfect romantic location for your special day, Zinc offers an affordable, stylish reception venue for you and your guests to celebrate with you.

Unlike  restaurant venues, Zinc has dedicated areas for receptions so that yours can be enjoyed without interruption from other restaurant patrons.

Because of Zinc’s dedicated wedding reception areas, you will not have to pay a large “sole-use” fee. Be sure to ask us about our special rates during certain quieter times of the year. Holding your wedding reception outside of peak times can save you money!
