Douglas Shire Council Mayor Julia Leu officially granted Australian citizenship to 17 new citizens at the Port Douglas Community Hall today.
Our tropical paradise, laid-back character and fantastic lifestyle were some reasons highlighted by new citizens for sticking around in Douglas Shire.
They received an official certificate and a native plant to help officially welcome them to the Shire.
