Where lifestyle meets livelihood

Think of us your Douglas business concierge where you can access key resources, discover local stories, find local talent, and join the network of Douglas businesses and entrepreneurs.

Do It In Douglas is a collaboration between Douglas Shire Council, Douglas Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Port Douglas Daintree. The project is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

We recognise the importance of celebrating dynamic local talent, fostering a culture of innovation, and helping to facilitate opportunities for learning, promotion, and investment. We understand the importance of being connected with the right tools, resources, and people to help your business flourish in Douglas.

Douglas Shire Council is recognised as a Small Business Friendly Council through the Office of the Queensland Small Business Commissioner.  The Small Business Friendly (SBF) program aims to reduce barriers between large organisations and small businesses and to enhance the operating environment for small businesses.
