A STAPLE of the Port Douglas Carnivale will return to the marina this year.
The Seafood Extravaganza will be held at the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina on Sunday, May 27 and the old favourite is set to team up with Hemingway’s Brewery, who will have a specially crafted beer for the occasion.
The craft beer will match the seafood including oysters, prawns, mussels and fresh fish the Port Douglas craft brewery and restaurant is serving.
Hemingway’s Group Events Director Cathy Alexander said the cold seafood menu will include an oyster station with freshly shucked oysters, fresh prawns from North Queensland, sashimi and smoked mussels.
The Hemingway’s kitchen will also be serving hot seafood dishes such as fish and chips during the event. The new beer will be served alongside Hemingway’s other craft beers plus there will be wine tasting on the marina boardwalk.
The seafood event will also include plenty of entertainment with face painting and presentations by Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures for children.
“We’ve also got a doughnut shack on the marina for the kids,” Alexander said.
“There will be non-stop live entertainment till 5pm, the official end of the Extravaganza. Then we will continue with a Sunday session at Hemingway’s late into the evening.”
Hemingway’s will be opening its upstairs bar during the Extravaganza.
“There are great views of the marina from there, and we know people will love being up there.”
Alexander said the restaurant will also cater for anyone who comes along on the day.
“There’s plenty for non-seafood eaters and vegetarians. You’ll still be able to get a burger and all our other regular menu items.”
The Seafood Extravaganza is on May 27 from 12pm to 5pm at the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina, Port Douglas. Port Douglas Carnivale runs from May 25-27.
