An exciting opportunity to run a beachfront café and bar on the Daintree Coast is brewing.

Douglas Shire Council will today release a tender for a 10-year lease of the Thornton Beach Café, located between Cape Tribulation and Cow Bay.

The beachfront café contains 1328 square meters of operating space and has a one-bedroom unit attached.

Douglas Shire Council Mayor Julia Leu said the new lease was a fantastic opportunity in a beautiful location.

“A chance to run a café between the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef doesn’t get much better than this,” she said.

“This is a really exciting opportunity to make this little gem your own and live amongst a World Heritage-listed tropical paradise.

“Council also requires the winning tenderer to employ locals, which is a big plus for the local community.”

Thornton Beach is a renowned stretch of coastline that features a stunning backdrop.

A mandatory site visit for prospective tenders is scheduled for 12pm on Friday, October 4.

Tenders close on Wednesday, October 23.
