Water, or should I say - the lack of! The Cassowary Coast is running low on water and with no rain in sight, our water intakes are really starting to take a dive. We may be the wettest region in...

OCTOBER 16 2017


Friday’s tragic accident at Mission Beach has touched us all and I extend Council’s sincere condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the three people who lost their lives, and to the wider Mission Beach community.  We cannot begin to understand the depth of their pain but offer our support in any way we can.


This week is a big one for the Cassowary Coast with the opportunity for local fans to meet Rugby World Cup teams Italy and Tonga at a meet and greet at Tully Showgrounds tonight (Wednesday, October 18), open training sessions on Thursday at Callendar Park in Innisfail (Italy 2.30pm-4.30pm) and Tully Showgrounds (Tonga 3pm-5pm) and the International Exhibition rugby league games at Callendar Park on Friday evening.  The PNG Orchids v. my Mayor’s Invitational side, which is made up of players from North Queensland representative teams, will follow the State v. State Italian Heritage game. The big match kicks off at 8pm when Italy and Tonga play their last match before the Rugby World Cup.  Aside from the enjoyment of local football fans, it will put the international media spotlight on the Cassowary Coast, potentially worth more than $100,000.

Saturday will give everyone the opportunity to dress up for the Innisfail Annuals race day or create an extra-terrestrial costume for the UFO Festival at Cardwell.  

Rain showers have brought some relief to the region but residents are reminded that Level 2 water restrictions are still in force.  Check the Council website for details.

"Better Together"
