• Australia’s newest LGBTIQ+ festival

Port Douglas Hot & Steamy Festival

The inaugural Hot and Steamy Festival, Australia’s newest LGBTIQ+ festival, will be held in Port Douglas as a lead into the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras!

The vision of a group of local gay Port Douglas business owners and friends, Hot & Steamy has been developed to showcase Port Douglas and the Douglas Shire to the broader LGBTIQ+ community.

February in the tropics is hot, humid and steamy (hence the festival name), however, it is still a fantastic time to visit –with fewer crowds, balmy evenings and everything is lush and green.

An amazing events calendar has been put together by the Hot & Steamy team for what is set to become Tropical North Queensland’s premier gay festival.
