Whileaway Bookshop and Cafe at Port Douglas has grown over the last 16 years into a bustling hub for locals and tourists, mixing excellent coffee with great reads on laid back Macrossan St
Inside you’ll find a book lover’s utopia – the latest literary offers, relaxing beach reads, stunning coffee table tomes, fun kids activity books – and plenty of gorgeous toys, games and greeting cards and gifts for all occasions.  If we don’t have the book you are looking for, we’d be more than happy to order it for you.
This little haven of books, stationery and design is all about slowing down, so take your time browsing titles old and new inside or grab a table out the front and have a read or a chinwag.
As the name suggests, you can certainly while away the hours here as the cafe serves you coffee, tea, iced drinks, savoury and sweet treats.
While some bookshops feel like stuffy old libraries, we are the opposite: our welcoming and helpful staff are well-read and always happy to chat about their favourite author of the moment and help you decide on your next read.
