Pooch Party

Jalunbu Park, Corner Mowbray and Garrick Street


It’s the return of the most Pooch-tastic day of the year. Clear your canines calendar and get ready to party! Join in for a day of fun and games, especially for our four-legged friends, their owners, and all animal lovers to socialise, picnic, and party in the park. This fun filled event is sure to get tails wagging!  Treats, Entertainment and Prizes await as we look for:

  • Best Dressed Dog
  • Naughtiest  Dog – Tails of Destruction
  • Best Dog Trick
  • Dog with the Waggiest Tails
  • Owner/Dog Lookalike
  • Douglas Shire’s Top Dog

Hosted by Paul Makin from Douglas FM, there’s fun for all the family with facepainting, balloon animals and more, so get your furry friends together and join in the fun. Don’t have a Pooch, don’t worry, this crowd favourite event is as entertaining for humans as it is for dogs with cute costumes and plenty of laughs for all involved.

This event is proudly sponsored by Ray White Port Douglas in support of Paws and Claws Animal Shelter. Every dollar raised at this free family event is donated to the newly opened, purpose built, animal refuge and boarding facilities in the Douglas Shire.
