Fireworks New Years Eve in Palm Cove 2014

As with Port Douglas, the Cairns City council does not provide any funding towards the fireworks on New Years Eve this is always done with the kind contributions of most of the local Palm Cove businesses and so far each year they have been able to do 9.00 firework and then the midnight fireworks.

At present we have not heard any more news for Palm Cove but The Tour Specialists and Cairns Holiday Specialists have made our annual donations to ensure the night goes off with a bang.

New Years Eve in Port Douglas 2014

Like Palm Cove the local businesses pay to put on the New Years Eve Fireworks display and in Port Douglas and the local Chamber of Commerce also contribute to its cost. Dependant on the amount of donations and then splitting it into two shows then the best place to view the fireworks displays would be adjacent to The Combined Club at 8.30pm and at Anzac Park on the Port Douglas foreshore at midnight.

Otherwise get a booking in for a table at Lure Restaurant and Bar at the marina wharf as they are holding their annual white party which will have you partying until 3am

So words of advice book your New Years Eve accommodation now have a great Christmas with family and friends and show some friendship to other less fortunate than you this year and make some donations to charities as your Christmas giving gifts.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Cairns Holiday Specialists team xoxoxo
