Weekend Event Guide / 28-30 January 2022

What's on around the Douglas Shire this weekend?

 Oaks Resort are turning it on with another Tropical Sounds Pool Party tomorrow afternoon; a great excuse to chill with friends and floaties poolside with cool beat, cold drinks and yummy food.

Shannon Hunter is playing up at Mount Molloy tonight where Jag the Joker is sitting on $1800. In you miss him up the hill, he also plays at The Tav’s lazy afternoon session on Sunday.

If you’re feeling inspired by the Aussie Open, the Port Douglas Tennis Club are running a “Come and Try” afternoon tomorrow at the courts from 2-5pm.

Yoga returns to Mossman tomorrow too, hosted by Schell Clancy of Daintree Yoga, with the first class of 2022 kicking off at 9am.

The monthly Mareeba Markets are also held tomorrow.
