From glamorous, gourmet events like Palates of Port, Food, Wine and A Taste of Port, the Seafood Extravaganza and the Sheraton Mirage Longest Lunch to the community spirit celebrated by the Macrossan Street Parade and Four Mile Beach Day or quirky fun like the QT Recovery Party, Port Douglas turns on all its charm during Carnivale.
