Mayor Leu is calling on the public to visit Macrossan Street to see the lights turned on.
“Come to one of our fantastic restaurants or bars, have a drink, get some dinner and enjoy the street shining bright for the first time,” she said.
Council is encouraging everyone to use #LightUpPort when they take photos and post them to social media in a bid to promote the town.
“We want to make sure that when people are strolling down our beautiful Macrossan Street, they are taking photos and telling the world how amazing Port Douglas is,” Mayor Leu said.
The works were carried out by local company Bellero Electrical Services who worked with Decorative Lighting & Display Ltd worked to deliver the lights.
Mayor Leu additionally announced that more lighting projects will be carried out across the Shire.
“The lighting project will be extended with coloured lights planned for installation in Mossman and further work expected in Port Douglas.”
Further landscaping improvements are also on the agenda for Macrossan Street in the future.
Council has engaged Hortulus Australia Pty Ltd to develop new landscaping concept options to replace four stone pitch garden beds in the centre of Macrossan Street, located between Wharf St and the Port Village Shopping Centre.
Tourism Port Douglas Daintree Chief Executive Officer Tara Bennett said the new lights would add value to the town’s visitor experience.
“Port Douglas has a buzzing bar and restaurant scene that our visitors love,” she said.
“This project aims to add to their experience and leave them more satisfied with their Port Douglas holiday.”

Douglas Chamber of Commerce President Liz Ross said the Chamber was extremely pleased to see the project come to fruition.
“It has been a while in the making but the result will be well worth the wait for visitors, locals and more importantly, business,” she said.
“The ambience will have a tremendous impact for the business community and to know that there are new landscaping ideas emanating from a local business who has a great reputation for quality work and ideas will only further add to the improvements.
“Also knowing that lights will be added to Mossman’s main street is also good to see and we are really pleased both areas are being refreshed and updated, especially also those familiar with Instagram,” Ms Ross said.
The Macrossan Street Lighting Project is one of many projects that fall under the Port Douglas Blueprint, which will be a collection of masterplans and projects for the town that will be collated into one holistic vision for the future.
Council is also currently seeking community feedback on Market Park and Rex Smeal Park about how that area could be improved.
Decorative lighting company handles Christmas projects. In 2018 we were fortunate enough to undertake four Christmas lighting projects. Last year We had a Christmas installation for the popular shopping centre in Coolangatta The Strand. Another shopping centre Christmas project that we are proud to be apart of was for Pacific Fair on the Gold Coast. This was a fun project, where we draped the shop fronts in warm white fairy lighting, which were supported by LED Christmas Bows motifs.
Decorative Lighting Company’s Christmas services are not limited to shopping centres. We also worked with a few local councils to bring in the Christmas spirit with the use of decorative lighting products. A new project we were proud to be involved with, was the Nerima Gardens Christmas Wonderland 2018 project.
Decorative Lighting Company worked in association with City of Ipswich to bring in a magical and zany lighting design to transform the heritage garden into an amazing wonderland of lights laughter, and Christmas cheer.
For this project, Decorative Lighting Company exceeded our client’s expectations and nearly tripled their expected turn out to this unique event. Finally, Decorative Lighting Company undertook a specialised Christmas tree lighting installation in the hearth of Brisbane, Queen Street Mall. Decorative Lighting Company are great with installations and we installed lighting into 22 trees with the assistance of professional tree climbers, and machinery to install warm white fairy lights into white spotted gum trees.
Decorative Lighting Company undertake lighting projects all around Australia. We have done lighting projects in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and want to service all of Australia for Decorative Lighting Projects. We often respond to project briefs from local councils around the country, but we are also happy to be on the creative fore front and propose decorative lighting enhancements on a citywide scale. Decorative Lighting is a proven method for improving visitation to locations, promoting safety and ambience using clever LED lighting designs.
Bring people into your city using lighting. Decorative Lighting Company have been working with Dubbo Regional Council with small lighting projects to encourage night-time ambience and excitement into the town Centre. One aspect of our project work here was the fit out of the band rotunda with fairy lighting and colour changing flood lights.
These flood lights really bring energy and life into the area and can be colour changed to meet seasonal and theming demands simply by the click of a button. Fairy lights, as the name depicts, brings magic, fantasy and fun into urban and green spaces. Another recent project we undertook was for Racecourse Road with support from Brisbane City Council. Decorative Lighting Company undertook fairy light tree installations all along the street, totalling 37 trees, dressed up and alive with fairy lights. Its important to note, that with installations on living trees, Decorative Lighting Company undertake installation practices that are complimentary to natural tree growth and installed in a way that also prolongs the lighting products. Since this installation, the street has been reawakened, another successful fairy lighting project by Decorative Lighting Company.
Lighting can also promote safety by illuminating dark spots, parks, alleys, or even open spaces. Walkable cities are safe cities, so with the use of decorative lighting, areas that may be avoided due to concerns over safety, these issues can be resolved in a tactful and clean way. Decorative Lighting Company undertake lighting projects interstate, so if there is any need for lighting projects in Perth, lighting projects Adelaide, lighting projects Freemantle, lighting projects cairns, lighting projects Darwin, decorative lighting company would love to service these areas.

A new item to the range is a fringe curtain section either 1 metre or 600mm in drop length and these can be skirted around the bridal table or cake table. Decorative lighting company offers either hire or buy options and an installation service in some areas.
1.4 metre expandable curtain led fairy lights. Robust construction, easy to install.
Decorative Lighting Company’s exclusive “Deco led light” system is an innovative concept in outdoor decorative lighting, commonly referred to as “Fairy LED lights”. Decorative lighting company has recognized the need for a commercial grade outdoor lighting system that suited Australasian extremes in weather and UV light exposure.
Domestic grade outdoor fairy lights are generally low voltage and designed for temporary applications. When you are looking for the level of ambient light required in a commercial application a 240v system is the only way to go says Tony Norrie, Decorative lighting company’s Managing Director.
Deco light is a durable commercial grade fairy lighting system designed for outdoor use. Deco light is compliant, safe and certified to AS/NZ 60518.104.22.1682 Deco light is rated & tested to IP44 (rainproof) Deco light has a 12 month guarantee against total string failure.
Decorative Lighting Companies’ “deco” “Fairy led light” system is designed for permanent “outdoor use”, using “LED diodes” for colour that are excellent for longevity and are extremely durabale. Rubber sheathed cable also ensures better uv protection of wires. The system is very versatile and can be constructed as a “curtain light”, or continuous string of lights.
The power draw is very low and so, as many as 67 x 3 metre pieces of light can be run from one power outlet. The strings are certified and compliant to standard AS/NZ 4417.1 and have gained this approval through a Sydney Electrical Testing lab.”Fairy lighting” can be used as a decor enhancer or a simple lighting effect to living trees, building canopies or gardens. “Fairy led lights” add that extra fun element to festive occasions and will enhance main street plantings or special event decoration.
“Wedding light ideas” can be created with “fairy led lights” and are great used behind the “bridal table” or “wedding cake table”. Deco fairy led used for “Tree lights” is simple to use as each light strand is 3 metres long and screws into the next section or can be screwed into a split connector and so enables tree branches to be profiled easily with lights. A wrap and tape method of light string attachment means less stress to living trees.
