Welcome to the Douglas Chamber of Commerce. 

Our members are a dynamic business-focussed group who work toward a sustainable future for businesses and the broader community within a vibrant and thriving local economy.

Douglas Chambers’ goal for 2018 is to embrace the refreshed vitality in the community, to welcome new members, and to help develop the Chamber to reflect the interests of our diverse economy.

Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina, Sheraton Grand Mirage and the acquisition of Tropical Journeys by Experience Co, are some of the most recent investments promising a very healthy outlook for the business community.

In 2018, we look forward to being of service to you in supporting your #BusinessinParadise.

Registrations for the 2018 Port Douglas Carnivale “Tropical Magic” Street Parade are now open and a Call for Marshalling Volunteers!

A true community event in the finest tradition, the Macrossan Street Parade has long been a highlight of the Port Douglas Carnivale and regularly draws enthusiastic supportive crowds of thousands who line the high street to cheer for their friends, colleagues and community.  We are seeking fun loving, blinged up, all-star singing and dancing locals to be a part of this amazing spectacular event showcasing your town’s environment and community pride.

We are looking for multicultural diversity as well as corporate and local businesses, community organisations, local schools and schools dedicated to the performing and visual arts and everyone that wants to frock up and dance in the streets. 

Learn more about participating as a float, or as a volunteer marshall,  by clicking the image on the left.
