To support local business operators and to help re-boot the Kuranda Village, Council will waive busking fees for three months.
Mayor Angela Toppin said the small fee would be temporarily suspended to encourage buskers to perform in the Village to create a unique atmosphere.
“As Far Northerners start to explore the region, we want to encourage local performers to showcase their talents and add some much-needed street activation in the Village,” Cr Toppin said.
Buskers will still need to apply for a permit, however the fee will be waived.
Performers can lodge an application for to busk in the Kuranda Village, at the customer service centre in Kuranda or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
