Council is presently putting in place arrangements for the five-day ferry closure for AMSA’s out of water inspection required every five years.

We would like feedback on what worked last time, and what did not work.

There will be two drop-in sessions Thursday 18 August 2022.

  • Dragonfly Cape Trib, 17 Camelot Close, 12pm to 2pm
  • Diwan Sports Centre, Tea Tree Road, Diwan 4pm to 6pm.

Please RSVP to or telephone Gaye on 4099 9414.

For those unable to attend, you are welcome to call or email through any feedback you have.

We are aiming to confirm what arrangements will be in place by mid-September 2022, so feedback is requested by 27 August 2022.

November Ferry Maintenance

The Daintree River Ferry will not operate from 10pm Friday 18 November 2022 until Tuesday 22 November 2022 to allow for important safety maintenance work to be completed.

Contractors will replace the vessel’s northern loading ramp. At this stage, the ferry is expected to resume normal operations at 5am Tuesday 22 November, weather permitting.

There will be no vehicle ferry service during this period.

Council anticipates changed traffic conditions on Wednesday 16 November to Friday 18 November at the northern side of the river while contractors set up the work site, and again after works are complete, until the worksite is cleared.

Council will provide further details about these changed traffic conditions closer to the date.

A passenger vessel will take people across the river during the temporary closure period during daylight hours only.
