Boost for barra cap­i­tal

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

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.
