In the aftermath of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie in March 2017, numerous Council facilities and assets need repairs or improvements to continue providing a great service for our community.
Funding received from a range of sources including Council, insurance providers and jointly funded Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) under the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments, will generate a wide range of infrastructure projects to rebuild the Whitsunday region.
Some major works are already underway and completed to get popular facilities back open to the public, such as the Airlie Beach Lagoon Refurbishment. Other projects are currently being planned and waiting on funding approval before going to tender.
This page will be regularly updated with new information, so make sure you keep checking back here to find out the latest on the following projects.
Airlie Beach Lagoon Refurbishment
Whitsunday Regional Council reopened the Airlie Beach Lagoon on schedule at the end of August 2017, after Cyclone Debbie caused major damage to the Lagoon and precinct in March.
The Lagoon has been refurbished and improved, with a new pebblecrete pool surface, major landscaping and drainage upgrades, including new park facilities and garden beds.
Splash Pools Constructions completed the pool resurfacing works on behalf of Council, and the landscaping works were completed by Council’s Parks & Gardens team.
Some minor works have continued to take place around the Lagoon precinct, with new shade sails installed under Works for Queensland funding, and some park structures completed under insurance.
