Australia, Queensland, Port Douglas - Gay Owned

As a gay couple together since 1992, we believe that marriage and all the responsibilities and benefits that come with it should be available to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. So we created Purple Unions, a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

Australia currently does not allow or recognize marriages between gay and lesbian couples, but the state does allow adoption by gay and lesbian couples. Some locations offer domestic partner registries, and in November, 2011, Queensland passed a civil unions bill.
