Port Douglas Hot & Steamy Festival

14-17 February 2020

Australia’s newest LGBTIQ+ festival, Port Douglas Hot & Steamy, will take place from February 14th to 17th 2020!

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 and as a lead in to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

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 (see below) by the Hot & Steamy team for what is set to become Tropical North Queensland’s premier gay festival! Come and experience the very best of Tropical North Queensland with other fabulous members of the LGBTIQ+ from all over the world!
