‘‘A lot of councils are going in early to take advantage of the area and have a look around, it makes no sense to come for one night and that’s why we chose Port Douglas to showcase the area, it’s a marriage of economies and sport.
‘‘And we have a very special guest Jana Pittman, athletics is such a predominant sport up there and we thought Jana was a wonderful fit, she has just slipped across to bobsledding for the winter Olympics - she just came seventh in a European competition recently.’’
People are welcome to attend the awards and celebrate sport in North Queensland, meet Jana Pittman and future Olympians from the region at the North Queensland Sportstar Awards where there will be entertainment, surprises, dinners and drinks.
Tickets cost $60 and include a two course meal and predinner canape. Tickets are available now through Ticketlink.com.au and the Sheraton Mirage is offering discounted accommodation.
