There's lots happening in Airlie Beach

Updated: Mar 12

There is a lot of positive things happening in our local area. In this post I'll just mention a few of them.

Firstly the Airlie Beach Hotel re-opened this year after extensive renovations. A Queensland-based group has since consolidated its interest in the hotel, acquiring the property freehold 10 months after securing the leasehold interest. The city foreshore adjacent to the hotel (and to the north and west) has been extensively redesigned/recreated, and was launched with a special community event held on 29 June 2019.

The Abell Point Marina business, which is pictured below, has purchased Coral Sea Resort. This is set to transform that particular section of the foreshore in what is likely to be a very positive manner. Note that the blue pointer indicates the location of our house.

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.

The Whitsunday airport near Proserpine completed an impressive expansion project early in 2020, just prior to the Covid-19 shutdown. This included the installation of new screens for advertising (one of which is pictured below). The airport is currently receiving commercial flights from Brisbane provided by Alliance Airways, Jetstar and Virgin Australia.

More detailed information about each of these projects should be available via a google search.

Update: It has been announced that both Airlie Beach Race Week and Hamilton Island Race Week will be held in August 2021.
