THERE were a num­ber of watch­ful eyes en­listed over Air­lie Beach this time last year – 84 to be ex­act, and in the form of CCTV cam­eras.

More than $725,000 in fed­eral fund­ing was used for the in­stal­la­tion of the cam­eras, which would al­low Whit­sun­day Po­lice to keep a watch­ful eye on the Safe Night Precint from their sta­tion.

Pop­u­lar morn­ing pro­gram the Today Show re­vealed it was on its way to Air­lie Beach as part of the show’s We Love Aus­tralia tour.

A 2.4km bike track specif­i­cally de­signed for moun­tain bik­ing was opened in the Whit­sun­days, much to the plea­sure of rid­ers across the re­gion. The easy-go­ing track al­lowed rid­ers of all lev­els to give it a go.

And coun­try singer/song­writer Bill Cham­bers was an­nounced as the Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic’s very own am­bas­sador.
