The Week/End Guide

A Curated Guide to What’s On in Port Douglas, Daintree and Beyond.

All weekend, you’ll find live music at Paddy’s, the Court House Hotel and the Central Hotel on Friday and Saturday nights and again at the Court House for a Sunday market session. The Tin Shed often holds a chilled live music session on the deck on Sunday afternoons, and the Tav at Four Mile have live music every couple of Saturday afternoons.

This week at the Courthouse, Shannon Hunter plays Thursday night, Thomas Lowth plays Friday, Gigi plays Saturday and Yahdoh closes the week with his regular Sunday session. Get down to The Yachty for a full moon gig on Sunday night.

The Presets are coming to town!

After meeting at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes are celebrating 20 years with an anniversary tour of 20 intimate venues.

“We’ve been lucky enough to play the biggest stages and festivals in the world over the past 20 years, but nothing compares to the buck-wild intensity of an intimate party,” Moyes says in a statement. “They are an entirely different beast and we can’t wait to unleash over these 20 nights.”

The pair will be playing all their greatest hits from the last two decades, as well as some of the tracks that inspired them over the years – and even some unreleased surprises.

Mossman Show seeks Young Cattle Judge

Mossman Show are looking for expressions of interest for a Young Judges Cattle Competition in 2023!

The Fat Cattle section of the Mossman & District Show Society is considering running a Young Judges competition in 2023 and beyond. We are keen to gauge your opinion on this, and to determine if there is interest in younger members of the cattle raising community.

This would involve people between the ages of 15 to 25.

They would be required to judge the livestock in probably three classes of cattle entered in the show, score them using a common score card system, and make comments to the judge on why they have made the decisions they have.

They will receive feedback and advice from the judge on the day, and will also be given prior access to background material on structure, conformation and judging.

Your feedback will help decide if we proceed with this Young Judges category.

We would also appreciate any interested young judges to get in contact so we can start to put together this event. Contact details are as below.

Feedback and expressions of interest need to be returned by Monday 26th June, 2023.
