The Daintree Ferry priority lane will re-open from Saturday, September 19 to make it easier for Douglas locals to cross the river during the upcoming school holidays.

Douglas Shire Council and the ferry contractors will keep the priority lane open until October 5 to cater for the possibility of increased traffic.

The priority lane is for locals with a concession card and operates between 9am & 4:30pm.
