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.

If you haven’t already, 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.

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.

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.

Mareeba will be bustling with the rodeo crowd on Saturday, as the Rodeo is condensed to one day and one night this Saturday-it is only the Agricultural Show exhibit that is missing, so head for the hills for the Mareeba markets early Saturday morning then some country action and sideshow alley entertainment for all. Overnight on-site camping available.

Footy lovers, get out and support your local teams- Port Douglas Crocs AFL take on Cairns North in a home game on Saturday and the Mossman Sharks take on Atherton at home on Saturday at 6pm.

Check our included guide for next week’s NAIDOC events too!
