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.
Plastic Free Paradise

Go Local, Grow Local
Business Queensland's initiative aims to help Queensland businesses promote their products and services, and encourages Queenslanders to support small businesses in their community by shopping locally. By going local, small businesses can grow their business, create local jobs and help their community.
An Advertising TOOLKIT is now available on the image link to the right. It provides helpful downloadable resources your small business can use to help promote goods and services, encouraging others to shop locally and grow your business.
