The Douglas Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) has restricted access of the Daintree Ferry to local residents and essential services only, in response to the Federal Government’s advice against non-essential travel.
Council will work closely with local police and the ferry contractor to implement the new measures at the Daintree River crossing. Residents will be required to provide proof of their residential address, driver’s licence, local ferry card or be a regular user who can be identified by the ferry contractor.
Essential services include:
• Trades and Construction
• Emergency vehicles
• Emergency workers
• Those travelling to and from work
• Court orders including family court
• Compassionate grounds
• Medical treatment
