Anna Bligh Premier of Queensland visits Port Douglas.

Premier Anna Bligh will visit Port Douglas on Thursday as part of her plan to govern the State from Cairns for four days next week.

While in town she will attend a Port Douglas Chamber of Commerce luncheon to be held at the Sheraton Mirage Resort, and Chamber President Ken Dobbs said the town's business people are welcome to attend.

"She's coming here because she wants to talk to Port Douglas businesses, I mean that's essentially the reason," he said.

"I think it's prestigious to say that the Premier sees that Port Douglas is a significant enough business place to visit and hear about what are the issues we are facing."
