Energy Efficient LED Lighting

Installing Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights ensures your lighting is extremely energy efficient. LED lights are as bright as halogen but will produce the same amount of light while using 85% less power. They come in various light colours so you can achieve the effect you are after for the area you are lighting. Our experts can guide you to the best options for your specific requirements.

Ceiling Fan Installations

Living in the Tropics ceiling fans are essential. We have spent years determining the best types of fans that work in this environment and only install quality fans we know will prove to be reliable. We will securely install your fan and help you keep track of your warranty through our job management system. If you have a particular look you are after we can help you source something different or you are welcome to source your own fans and we will install them for you.

Garden and Outdoor Lighting

Mild winters mean we spend a lot of time outdoors in the Tropics, especially in the evenings. Let us help you turn your outdoor spaces into practical and user friendly areas by installing lighting that allows you to comfortably make use of them at night. Then to really set the scene, why not highlight the beauty of your tropical gardens as a design feature by installing low volt garden lighting. Or if your needs are simpler we can install a flood or sensor light to illuminate the entry of your property or everyday areas like your garbage storage.

Electrical Maintenance

Nothing lasts forever especially in the harsh environment of the Tropics where water and pests infiltrate areas we would rather they didn’t. Neither water nor pests mix well with Electricity so there will always be a need to ensure your electrical maintenance is well in hand. Keeping on top of any small issues will mean they are less likely to become bigger. From the smallest task like replacing a cracked power point to a full switchboard upgrade we can assist to keep you on top of things. Then if the worse happens we are only a phone call away offering emergency call outs 24/7 for any power, lighting or hot water issues you may experience.


Change is as good as a holiday. Sometimes a bathroom face-lift is all that’s required other times your entire property needs an overhaul. We can help you with all types of renovations from the planning and advice stage to the final finishing touches. Working alongside your chosen tradesmen or project managers we will keep you in the loop every step of the way. Or if you need advice on other reliable tradesmen in the area we can guide you here too. We aim to make your project as hassle free as we possibly can.

Electrical Upgrades

The Electrical Industry is ever-evolving with the introduction of new technologies and updated legislation. We can assist you to ensure your property complies with all the relevant changes. Whether it be the introduction of new Fire Alarm Laws or updates to the safety switch regulations. We are required by law to leave your property safe for all occupants and we take this very seriously. Not only do we have systems in place to ensure we meet compliance but we actually use these systems. We will never leave your property in an unsafe state and will always provide advice on improvements you can make to ensure all Australian Standards are met.

Smoke Alarms

On the 1st of January 2017 changes were made to Queensland State Government Fire Alarm Laws. The law dictates the use of interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms and will eventually apply to all Queensland dwellings. Allow us to talk you through the requirements and help you make a decision on how and when to make changes to your property to ensure you are compliant with the legislation.

Sy Dolphin Electrical have been a valuable support to our Property Management Department, consistently executing a high standard of work at a competitive price. Sy & Amber and their team are fantastic to work with and offer an overall excellent service and experience time and time again.

Jocelyn SchumacherCo-Owner & Senior Property Manager Raine & Horne Mossman/Port Douglas

Sy and the team at Sy Dolphin Electrical are an efficient organised operation that have been a great support to our business. They acutely understand the pressures we are under when guests in our resort have an issue and we need the services of an electrician to fix this problem in a very timely manner. Whilst we understand we are not the only resort they look after with urgent guest needs, they are extremely good at allocating their resources so we can keep our guests happy. They have also been very helpful in recommending new technologies and product options as we transitioned across to newer more efficient power saving lighting solutions.

Murray WorthingtonHotel Manager Oaks Lagoons Port Douglas

We have renovated two properties in Port Douglas and have used the team at Sy Dolphin for both. They are consistently professional, courteous and responsive. The communication is excellent as is the quality of the workmanship. Any issues (albeit minor) were dealt with quickly. Unlike other trades, if they are delayed or unable to attend at the specified time, they always call to advise and reschedule. Always our go to team for any electrical work.

Amanda and Michael O’BrienPort Douglas

Sy Dolphin Electrical's exceptional customer service skills along with fast call out times mean that work is always done quickly and the process is hassle free from start to finish. Their tradesmen are fantastic, very knowledgeable about different products, always providing clean and tidy workmanship as well as giving a lot of attention to detail to ensure that expectations are met. Thank you for always providing a great level of service.

Katie BarnettJKC Auto Mossman

We have used Sy Dolphin Electrical for over 10 years and could not be happier. The level of service and professionalism offered by Sy, Amber and their friendly team is second to none, (and whether you have a large or small job it remains that way too!) Would recommend this family business to anyone!

Sarah CullenEditor Port Douglas Magazine

I have had so many frustrating experiences with tradies, but I am happy to say that Sy Dolphin is worth his weight in gold. He has never let me down when I really need him and I know I can depend on both his sound advice and his workmanship – and that extends to his staff as well. If you need a good electrician then don't go past Sy Dolphin Electrical!
