Airlie Beach Foreshore Revitalisation

The Airlie Beach Foreshore is an important feature of the Whitsunday region for tourists and locals alike. It is valued for it's beautiful bay and island views, relaxing lagoon and regular markets, festivals and events.

In 2016, the Airlie Beach community were asked to have their say about the proposal for revitalisation of the area, which outlined improvements to infrastructure, multipurpose areas and the beautification of surrounds. After extensive consultation Option A was chosen as the preferred option, with the markets remaining in their current popular location.

On 28 March 2018 Council unanimously voted to approve the detailed design for the $6.3 million project. Construction is expected to start in May 2018, for completion by December. Features of the project include:

  • 65 extra sealed carparks,
