Whitsunday Regional Council recently contracted Paynters to construct the $6.3 million Airlie Beach Foreshore Revitalisation Project. Once completed, the newly developed foreshore area will provide a place where residents and tourists can gather, attend events and relax in a high-quality seaside environment.
Whitsunday Coast Mayor Andrew Wilcox had previously said, “This will activate the Airlie Beach foreshore and improve connectivity along our attractive beach frontage via the Bicentennial Walkway.
“Features of the project include an improved area for markets, 65 extra sealed car parks, a new sound stage and tourist bus hub, a refurbished amenities block and a massive new playground with sails,” he said.
The Airlie Beach Foreshore Revitalisation Project is an initiative of Council and funded by the Queensland State Government.
