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.

Be sure to pop in to immerse yourself in the wonder of the Retrospectives Exhibition at the Port Douglas Community Hall that is currently showing. The exhibition is a brilliant celebration of Douglas Shire artists past, present and emerging.

There are markets far and wide across the far north, with Mossman markets a great destination for fresh essentials for those of us laying low in uncertain times, but there are also community markets in Koah, Redlynch and Gordonvale if you are looking to venture further afield.

The fabulous Kiki Courtidis is now playing live each Friday at the Daintree Bar at the Sheraton Grand Mirage, and locals, guests and visitors are welcomed.

For the second week, Oaks Resort Port Douglas welcome back locals poolside, with another locals Sunday sessions this weekend, promising house DJs, live music and fabulous food and drink specials all afternoon.

Footy lovers, get out and support your local teams-Douglas United Footy will be played in Cairns tonight and Port Douglas Crocs AFL have the pleasure of a home game on Saturday.
