From November through until the end of February 2017 Douglas Shire Council offers locals free travel on the Daintree Ferry with a Douglas Card if you reside in the following regions:
- Douglas Shire
- Mareeba Shire Council
- Tablelands Regional Council
- Cairns Regional Council
- Cassowary Coast Regional Council; and
- Cook Shire Council
You could be heading to scenic Cape Tribulation, the stunning Daintree Rainforest and picturesque Great Barrier Reef this weekend for your own little local get away! Take the family for a digital detox of rest and relaxation or better yet, hit Jungle Surfing or Ocean Safari for the adventure of a lifetime.
And if you are coming up this way, come and see us at Cape Trib Beach House for the only accommodation right on Cape Tribulation Beach – where the reef meets the rainforest. Indulge at our Bar and Restaurant or stay the night with someone special.
To get your free Douglas Card, all you need to do is provide photographic identification and an additional proof of residency with the application to confirm local status at any one of the above local government areas. Application forms are available by downloading and completing a Douglas Card Application Form 2016/17.
Forms are also available from Council’s Mossman Administration Building, the Mossman Library or the Port Douglas library kiosk.
Note: Use of the Douglas Card is restricted to fare categories Motor Car and Utilities (private use), Pedestrians and Bicycles and Motor Bikes. Only valid for November until 28th February 2017.
