The Queensland Government has fast-tracked the construction of two Whitsunday island projects - with both projects valued at $165 million.
“These projects will create hundreds of local jobs and support tourism recovery in the Whitsundays.
“Our priority is to revive the region by fast-tracking jobs and business opportunities in the Whitsundays,” Tourism Minister Kate Jones said.
Works on the Hayman Island project will include the removal of debris and damaged infrastructure as well as redevelopment of resort accommodations and staffing village and new landscaping.
“This is an important step on restoring Hayman Island Resort to its iconic luxury resort status following the impact of Tropical Cyclone Debbie.
“We are working hard on Hayman’s restart, and we look forward to the resort once again employing 350-400 staff and welcoming guests from all around Australia and the World,” Mulpha Australia Limited CEO Greg Shaw said.
The repair and refurbishment of Daydream Island will include the redevelopment of accommodations, recreational, dining and reception.
