5 WAYS TO SPEND $7 MIL­LION IN AIR­LIE

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

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.

Water parks

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.

Ca­ble Car

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.

Bowl­ing Al­ley

In a bid to in­tro­duce more main­land ac­tiv­i­ties for kids, a bowl­ing al­ley was an­other stand-out op­tion.
