The Douglas Shire Historical Society operates the Port Douglas Court House Museum with volunteers.  It has been an Incorporated Society since 1994 and was set up to preserve the history of the area and to establish the Port Douglas Court House Museum.

We are always looking for new members.  If you are interested in research, in being a volunteer at the museum, or in helping to catalogue our collection, please email us.
