Big touch screen to be launched at Mossman Library

An interactive touch screen and virtual reality goggles has been launched at the Mossman Library.

The Mossman Library received funding for the multi-touch hub through the Public Library Strategic Priorities Grant.

The Hub is a big touchscreen that allows multiple people to utilise it at once, providing fun and education for people of all ages. There is also a set of virtual reality goggles. 

Cape Tribulation campsite approved

A tourist park containing 15 campsites in Cape Tribulation has received development approval from Douglas Shire Council.

The park has a 60-person capacity and is located on land next to Cape Tribulation Road. The development seeks to complement the existing camp ground known as Cape Tribulation Camping.
Some minor works, including gravel placement, will be required to make the road a suitable for motorhome access.

Council moves to help local sporting club

Port Douglas Outrigger Canoe Club (PDOCC) can now store their equipment in a safe place.

Douglas Shire Council approved an application for the club to extend the shed with roofing to allow all equipment to be stored neatly out of the weather.

The new roofing will be used for the purposes of storing outrigger canoes and boat trailers.
