Three day Cooktown Airport closure for critical repairs

The Cooktown Airport will be closed for urgent repairs from 6am Wednesday, December 4 to 6pm Friday, December 6 2019, weather dependent. The repairs are critical to the ongoing safety of the runway and must be completed before the wet season. Council sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused by this closure, and would like to thank airport users for their understanding and patience while we complete this essential work. For more information, contact Council's Director Infrastructure. For urgent flight needs during this period, please contact Daintree Air Service via their website or

Pre-cyclone clean up 

To help residents prepare for cyclone season, Cook Shire waste transfer stations will be accepting all sorted domestic waste free (excluding commercial waste) during their regular opening hours from Friday, December 6 to Sunday, December 15 2019. All waste must be pre-sorted, and non-sorted waste will incur a fee. Please sort your waste into separate streams, such as household, mixed recyclables, scrap metal, furniture and whitegoods. If you're not sure how to sort your waste, or what the separate streams are, visit our waste management page.

BUSHFIRE ALERT

The Cook Shire Fire Management Group is urging residents to avoid lighting any fires, including backyard fires and campfires, during the current extreme fire risk conditions. Please also be mindful of your actions and dispose of cigarettes responsibly, and avoid parking vehicles in dry grass and slashing of any kind. For bushfire safety tips, visit Council’s emergency management dashboard.
