What’s On Around the Douglas Shire This Weekend?

Enjoy our definitive guide to ‘What’s On’ in, and around, the Douglas Shire this weekend.

It’s another action-packed weekend, kicking off with Barefoot Bowls at the Mossman Bowls Club, a fundraiser for the Hospital, then over to Crossroads to enjoy the finest display of musical talent and local entertainment.

Recovery will no doubt be beach-side on Four Mile while the social swimmers hit the water.

Social choices start to get serious now…over to the Croc Pit to see the Crocs take on the Centrals in the footy? Followed by guaranteed laughter at the new home of cane toad racing at Chilly’s before their House Party kicks in? Or head for the hills, north over the River for a spot of social cricket at Alexandra Bay Sports Club?

Followed by more Daintree style jamming with the Walker Brothers….hmmmm….

Sunday will surely deserve a chilled start, with a Vietnamese coffee at the Sunday markets, a walk around Flagstaff Hill and a huge choice of Sunday session music and dining options in Port Douglas-Barbados? Plantation? Palmer Sea Reef? The weather is prime, and the social choices even more so!

Enjoy your weekend!
