Port Douglas Carnivale 2015


 

Port Douglas Carnivale 2015 is 21 years old this year and has truly come of age!  Originally the Carnivale was a celebration to mark the start of the sugar cane harvesting in the region, but now it is one of the most recognised events in Australia.

This year’s celebrations will be bigger and better than ever over 10 days in May, 22 to the 31st, it is a highlight in the Tropical North Queensland 2015 calendar.

There will be something for everyone, whether you are a ‘Foodie’, Sports Fan or lover of Art or just like to party, the Port Douglas Carnivale will be the place to be!

Events will highlight the plethora of fantastic tropical produce, with celebrity chef luncheons and demonstrations featuring; Sheraton Mirage Longest Lunch, Seafood Extravaganza, Zinc Chandon Lunch, Palates of Port and more…

Of course no Carnivale would be complete without a Parade!  The Macrossan Street Parade opens the weeklong celebration with street buskers, singers and dancing.  This year’s Carnivale colourful parade will feature more floats and more street decorations to mark the 21st Anniversary. 

 Four mile beach at Port Douglas will make the perfect venue for some exciting sporting events.  Last year featured the Australian first Yabusame Japanese horseback archery tournament and was a hit with spectators.  The event will return in 2015 and will promise to be another thrilling and colourful spectacle!  Following that there will be more horseback action with the Medieval Jousting Tournament.

There will be some new quirky, sporty and delicious events this year such as;  World Racing Motorised Cooler Championships (not your average ‘Eskys’!), Kite Surf & Stand Up Paddle, ‘Feast’ in the park & Cycle for Hope Charity Ride to name a few.. (see individual event information).

Port Douglas Carnivale is a perfect time to stay in Tropical North Queensland, for a romantic getaway, party time with mates or fun filled family holiday.
