Boost for barra capital
AUSTRALIA’S best barra impoundment at Peter Faust Dam will be transformed by $1 million in funding.
Tourism Whitsundays CEO Craig Turner said the dam was an asset for the region, but it’s time to take it to the next level.
“We want to build some infrastructure there so that when people go to the dam they might be able to check in at a reception desk, they might be able to hire a tinnie, some fishing rods, hobbie cats or kayaks,” he said.
He said the make-up of the development would hinge on stakeholder input.
“We’re very determined to drive visitation to the Proserpine dam and see Proserpine benefit,” he said.
