ONE YEAR AGO...
THE ongoing debate of whether or not the Great Barrier Reef is dying made headlines last year.
A special spread outlined what the truth was about the Whitsundays’ coral reefs by speaking with scientists, tourism operators and more.
Superyachts started making their way to the Whitsundays and with Airlie Beach considered the second cousin to Hamilton Island when it came to superyachts, Abell Point Marina owner Paul Darrouzet was determined to make the mainland a destination in its own right.
Whitsunday Regional Council clamped down on illegal camping after a photo on social media captured a campervan plugged into a council power box near a No Camping Anytime sign.
And Airlie’s foreshore was given some TLC when more than 50 Eco Barge volunteers took part in a land-based clean up.
