DOUGLAS Shire has just welcomed another diverse group of new Aussies at a Citizenship Ceremony in Port Douglas.

12 new Aussies were welcomed from a range of countries including United States of America, Italy, France, United Kingdom, Brazil, Ireland, and Spain.

Douglas Shire Mayor Michael Kerr welcomed our new citizens, before presenting each new Aussie with their certificate alongside Deputy Mayor Lisa Scomazzon. Each new Aussie was fittingly gifted a native plant from the Mossman Nursery.
