Douglas Shire Council released their report today outlining the Daintree River Crossings Options.

This report will explore the options available for crossing the Daintree River.

Feedback will be sought on whether people prefer a bridge or a two-ferry service and the Engagement Plan may be viewed and/or downloaded here. In brief, feedback will be sought two ways:

1.       The first is via an online survey which will open September 14, 2020. A survey link will be emailed out and posted on Council’s website. All residents will receive a survey card in their letterbox.

2.       The survey check box responses only, so for those wanting to provide extended comments, these can be emailed to

The closing date for feedback is 26 October 2020.
