What’s On Around the Douglas Shire This Weekend 6-8 August 2021

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

While many areas around the nation are enduring more lockdowns, how appreciative are we for the freedom to safely enjoy weekends in the pristine wilderness that is our backyard. This weekend, we’re making it our mission to enjoy the great outdoors-the weather isn’t ideal for the reef, so perhaps head north to the Daintree and relish the exquisite rainforest-if you head further north to Lions Den, local favourite Shannon Hunter is playing live over the weekend. Camping available at the pub.

If you head inland, Mount Molloy has their fabulous Jag the Joker night tonight, with Lady Valiant lighting up the dance floor. Spend the night and head off early for a tour of the tablelands and its many waterfalls and walks, a refuge from the Covid crisis.

The fabulous Kiki Courtidis is also playing live tonight 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 session this weekend, promising house DJs, live music and fabulous food and drink specials all afternoon. “The Tav” at Four Mile are also introducing Sunday Sessions with live music by local fave Seachange from 1pm this weekend.

If you’ve always wanted to “Give Golf a Go”, a free golf clinic is being held by PGA professional Dan Harrington.

On the subject of sport, the Port Douglas Crocs AFL team take on the South Cairns Cutters at home on Saturday, with Reserves kicking off from 12pm.

What is the weather doing?

A high [1032 hPa] moving eastward across southern Australia extends a strengthening ridge over northern waters. The high will move into the Tasman Sea later in the weekend or early next week, with winds turning more onshore. Weekend winds are a fairly consistent southeasterly 15 to 20 knots.
