Project Updates


Douglas Shire Council has released a short survey to gauge how much the community wants a splash park and recreational pool in Port Douglas.

Complete Survey here

Council recently completed investigations into the possibility of restoring an old pool on Port Douglas Rd, finding the site was unsuitable as a public recreation area due to issues with car-parking and vehicle access from the main road.

The chemical-free lagoon vision, released by the previous Council months before the last local government election, will not be progressed.
