Port Douglas Carnivale general manager Roy Weavers said he was disappointed to learn of the closure of the Cairns and Port Douglas based business.

“Events NQ has worked in partnership with Port Douglas Carnivale since 2007. During this time there have been some incredible highlights and their is no question their events helped to propel Port Douglas Carnivale on the domestic and international stage.”

Mr Weavers said the Carnivale committee was already in discussion with a number of industry partners to create two new flagship events to kick off the opening festivities and an announcement would be made in the coming weeks.
