There's lots happening in Airlie Beach

Updated: Aug 24

Lots of positive things have been happening in our local area, and continue to do so. In this post I'll just mention a few of them.

1. The Airlie Beach Hotel re-opened after extensive renovations, and the city foreshore adjacent to the hotel (and to the north and west) was extensively redesigned/recreated . A Queensland-based group has since consolidated its interest in the hotel, acquiring the property freehold 10 months after securing the leasehold interest.

2. The Abell Point Marina business (pictured below) purchased Coral Sea Resort. This has already transformed that particular section of the foreshore in a very positive manner (the blue pointer indicates the location of our house, by the way).

3. Daydream Island re-opened after a lengthy process of reconstruction and renovation that included the construction of a giant aquarium. Hayman Island has also re-opened following it's own process of major upgrading and transformation.

4. The Whitsunday airport near Proserpine completed an impressive expansion project in 2020. This included the installation of new screens for advertising (one of which is pictured below).

5. Airlie Beach Race Week has just been successfully held again, but sadly a decision was made to cancel Hamilton Island Race Week in 2021.

More detailed information about each of these projects is available via a targeted google search.
