Marlin Drive Wonga Beach Speed Control Device Survey

Following a traffic survey conducted by Council in August, 2019 on Marlin Drive, between Mossman Daintree Road and Oleander Drive, Council is considering ways to reduce the speed of vehicles in the area and we’d like your feedback to determine if installing raised platforms is welcomed by the community.

Please complete this 7 question survey, which should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

If feedback is generally positive, funding will be considered for the 2020-2021 financial year. If a mixed response is recorded, Council, in conjunction with the community, will explore other ways to achieve the desired outcome, which is designed to make Marlin Drive safer for residents.

Kids survey - Play & Sport facilities at Port Douglas & Mossman

We want to hear from children aged 5 – 18 about what they’d like to see by way of fun things and sporting facilities at the Port Douglas Sports Complex, Coronation Park (Mossman Showgrounds) and George Davis Park. We’ve already gathered feedback from 200+ adults, but only a few children. If you have children or grand-children living here, please encourage them to do the survey, and to send out to their friends. Complete the survey here:
