Discovery Festival feedback needed

The dust is settling after a wonderful weekend at the Cooktown Discovery Festival, and we would like to hear about your experience. If you attended the festival as a guest, volunteer, worker or organiser, please fill out our short online survey and help us build a bigger and better festival next year. 

Cooktown waterfront traffic changes

Please be aware of changed traffic conditions on the waterfront this month. Heavy machinery will be working on the Webber Esplanade road, and to ensure pedestrian and vehicle safety, traffic will be detoured at times during the works. Please obey signage and staff in the area, and expect traffic and parking changes this month.

Microchip discount vouchers available now

Your dog must be microchipped - it's the law. Microchipping is a great way to ensure your pet is returned to you promptly should they become lost and not have any other identifying items on them, such as a collar or tag. Council and Seadog Vets have teamed up to promote microchipping and are offering a discount on chipping for all new dog registrations. But hurry, the discount vouchers are limited! To take advantage of this offer, pick up a microchip discount voucher from the Council office when you register your pet for the first time, and take it with you to your microchipping appointment at Seadog Vets.
