DOUGLAS CARD ALLOWS FREE ACCESS FOR DAINTREE FERRY
Residents from the Douglas Shire, Mareeba Shire, the Tablelands, Cairns, the Cassowary Coast and Cook Shire are eligible to obtain a Douglas Card for free access on the Daintree ferry for four months which started from November 1. Use of the Douglas Card will be restricted to fare categories Motor Car and Utilities (private use), Pedestrians and Bicycles and Motor Bikes. TPDD is working with Douglas Shire Council to raise awareness of the free travel and the diversity of experiences on offer with the aim of attracting more regional visitors to the Daintree over the coming months. To obtain a free Douglas Card, applicants need to provide photographic identification and additional proof of residency with their application to confirm local status. Application forms are available from the Douglas Shire Council website, or visiting Council’s Mossman Administration Building, the Mossman Library or the Port Douglas library kiosk.
