Visitor Travel Restrictions On Daintree Ferry


Due to the Federal Government’s advice against non-essential travel, the Douglas Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) is restricting access at the Daintree Ferry to local residents and essential services only from midday Thursday, March 26.

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, drivers licence, local ferry card or be a regular user who can be identified by the ferry contractor.

Essential services includes:

· Freight

· Trades and Construction

· Emergency vehicles

· Emergency workers

· Those travelling to and from work

· Court orders including family court

· Compassionate grounds

· Medical treatment

The new measures are a precautionary response to reduce the risk of COVID-19 within the community. The restrictions will be active until further notice.
