5 WAYS TO SPEND $7 MILLION IN AIRLIE
IN A BID to drive visitation to the Whitsundays, there’s a potential $7 million on the table for infrastructure projects.
This week, we asked our readers what they would like to see the money put towards.
Here are just some of the most popular responses.
A water park in the region was a standout option for many of our readers, with the lagoon being one of the only places locals and visitors can enjoy the water safely.
Peter Faust dam camp sites
Camping at Peter Faust Dam was a popular choice among readers.
There’s currently no camping options at the dam which is a highly popular spot for fishing.
Reef Appreciation and Info Centre
The Great Barrier Reef is Australia’s and even one of the world’s largest natural assets. Many people would love to see information made available to the public to highlight just how important it is to maintain the reef and keep it alive.
An information centre about the reef is believed to do just that.
Viewing Airlie Beach from a cable car would give visitors and even locals a new way activity.
Mountain Bike/walking path
The Whitsunday community is certainly an active one and many locals would love to see more tracks created which are dedicated to mountain biking and walking.
In a bid to introduce more mainland activities for kids, a bowling alley was another stand-out option.
