Welcome to the Port Douglas Carnivale. For 10 balmy days and nights each May (May 20-30th 2010), the festival of Carnivale takes over the seaside resort village of Port Douglas (Queensland, Australia) offering food, wine, music, culture, fashion, arts, sports, family fun and entertainment… and absolutely every reason you need to head to lovely Port Douglas!
Don`t forget to book your Port Douglas Accommodation early.
Now 18 years old and recognised as one of the regions principal events, Carnivale has grown from a street fiesta to a broad and diverse program which involves the entire community. Managed by the Port Douglas Chamber of Commerce, Carnivale aims to give locals a chance to celebrate the end of the wet season and the beginning of the busy tourist season, while encouraging regional, national and international visitors to visit and take part in the jocular festivities.
Port Douglas is just an hour’s drive from Cairns via a spectacular coastal road that is surrounded by forest and the Coral Sea and is the proud home to dozens of national award winning restaurants and resorts. It is the only place on Earth where two World heritage listed jewels exist; the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation. With the seductive May climate, balmy cloudless blue sky days dissolve into tropical evenings with velvet starry skies, giving Carnivale-goers the perfect opportunity to enjoy “A Taste of Paradise”.
