Ugly scenes at swingers' resort as nudists war over dress code

Police were forced to intervene between warring nudists during a stoush at a clothing-optional resort in north Queensland.

A tourist claims he was evicted from the adults only The White Cockatoo resort in Mossman, near Port Douglas, after he refused to bare all in front of three women.

John Harrison and his wife, Lyn, had their stay cut short after resort owner Tony Fox accused the couple of being "disrespectful" to other guests because Mr Harrison chose not to get naked ahead of a dinner date.

Police were called amid threats of violence and lewd behaviour to escort the Gold Coast couple from the resort on Tuesday night.

The nudist-friendly resort is hosting a month-long swingers' romp in a bid to boost business.

The 57-year-old business consultant told he was having a conversation with Mr Fox and three nude women, when he was bailed up over his "dress sense".

"Fox turned to me out of the blue and said, 'Why are you dressed?'" Mr Harrison said.

"He then said, 'Well I think you're being disrespectful to these women [by] being dressed.'"

He claims he was then called a "d---head".


Within the hour, Mr Fox had evicted the couple.

Mr Fox, who spoke to this morning, said Mr Harrison was thrown out after he confronted him violently.

"He threatened to bash me ... and only then did I order him off the premises," Mr Fox said.

The resort owner of seven years said Mr Harrison had behaved in a "lecherous manner" towards the women.

"I only asked him to show a bit of respect," Mr Fox said.

"The fact that he was dressed was only part of the picture.

"It was not the appropriate situation or circumstance for him to be fully dressed standing there with those ladies when they were so obviously upset about the fact that he was there."

Mr Fox said the resort - which uses the marketing slogan "almost anything goes" - banned only cameras and illegal drugs.

Mr Harrison has denied his behaviour was offensive.
