THE 'Welcome to Paradise' mural in Port Douglas has been pulled down.

Local maintenance company TNQ Services were commissioned to remove the big fence at 71-85 Port Douglas Road, the location of a once planned $140 million Havana resort.

The last of the coloured timber planks were removed this afternoon as rumours begin to circulate the site could become a new indoor paintball and skirmish centre for Port Douglas.

Newsport understands a Sydney-based construction company is involved.
