Airlie Beach Foreshore Revitalisation

Official Opening Celebrations - Foreshore Fiesta - 29 June
Whitsunday Regional Council held official opening celebrations at the new Foreshore on Saturday 29 June, from 2pm – 6.30pm. The Airlie Foreshore Fiesta was a huge success, with over 2000 people enjoying the new area over the afternoon.

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. 

The detailed design was adopted by Council on 28 March 2018 and construction began in September 2018. The project was completed by the end of June 2019, on budget and in time for the July school holidays. 

Revitalisation works were funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) ($850,000), and through the Palaszczuk Government’s $365 million Building our Regions Program ($2.83 million) and its $110 million commitment to areas impacted by STC Debbie ($2.657 million).
