Great Barrier Reef threat
More than 150 Whitsundays tourism operators descended on Whitehaven Beach recently to roll out their beach towels in a ‘ Welcome Back’ message aimed at tourists, as the region recovers from Tropical Cyclone Debbie that struck earlier in the year.
Tourism Whitsundays chief executive officer, Craig Turner, says: “It’s important the world knows that most hotels have opened their doors, tours are back on the water and the sun is again shining on the Whitsundays.”
Air Niugini flies regularly from Port Moresby to Brisbane, Cairns and Townsville, from where you can access the Whitsundays. See airniugini.com.pg. ■
