Too much sun can get you a little kooky. But that only makes things better for the future festivities in tropical town Port Douglas.
Without trying to sound too kitsch, there’s seriously going to be some tropical fun in the Port Douglas sun
As we reported in last month’s eNewsletter, kicking off in true coastal style the Go Troppo Arts Festivals opens on October 17th at the port’s old sugar wharf, complete with a reef-themed stringed ensemble and oceanic art in amongst a cocktail-sipping crowd.
Bringing together the neighbouring towns of Cairns and Tablelands in far north Queensland, the festival aims to create a sense of identity in the area through the arts.
An assortment of free and cheap art exhibitions, movie screenings, photographic workshops and music performances should be more than enough to keep the sea-loving and cultured crowd entertained.
Keep an eye out for the Port Shorts Film Festival on the 18th at the Central Hotel, where wannabe filmmakers have the opportunity to present three-minute movie creations. Viewing sessions will be followed by plenty of time to relax or jive to soulful sounds.
