Council Drop In Sessions – December 2022

Council is seeking feedback on the arrangements made for the November three-day closure of the ferry needed to replace the northern ramp.

Council staff will be based at Daintree Peaks Eco Stays at 22 Ironbark Road, Diwan, on Tuesday 13 December 2022 and people are welcome to drop in anytime between 10am and midday.

The purpose for inviting feedback is to understand if Council can improve on any aspects.  The ferry is scheduled to be taken out of the water again next year, 6-10 March 2023, for Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) mandatory out of water inspection. AMSA inspections for this vessel are required every five years and the last one was done in March 2018.

You may provide feedback by emailing gaye.scott@douglas.qld.gov.au or you can pop in and talk to Council officers.
