Whitsunday's Recovery from Cyclone Debbie
It’s been 4 weeks since TC Debbie hit Airlie Beach and the progress at Abell Point Marina is moving on every day. Ocean Club has been towed it’s new home at the marina and the remaining cosmetic works will be finalized ready for launch beginning of June to coincide with the Cruising Season Launch Party the marina is hosting. The new Hemingway’s restaurant will open on 12 May to the public after a huge effort from our contractors and team to get the project back on track. With modern Australian cuisine on offer and a coastal chic design the restaurant will offer our marina guests and visitors a new level of dining experience in a stunning waterfront setting. Progress is being made with the restoration of the pontoons, with G arm sections being removed by barge to make space for the new structure to be installed.
The temporary walkway on L arm will be replaced in two-weeks’ time with a brand new custom made walkway, just in time for our early season superyacht bookings to arrive. The Whitsunday tourism industry was out in force at Whitehaven beach this week to get the message out that the Whitsundays are open to visitors (see image attached from Whitehaven taken 26.04.17). With flagpoles being reinstated, weddings taking place the last two weekends at our function venue and the green leaves returning to the trees, it truly is a case of getting back to business.
