Whitsunday Regional Council resolved this week to release an Expression of Interest for prospective tenants of the new $54.5million Shute Harbour marine facility.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said the marine facility provided a unique opportunity for Council to deliver a major infrastructure investment for the Whitsunday region.
“Once completed in mid-2021, Shute Harbour will be a world-class commercial facility that would reinvigorate the Whitsundays.”
“With restored modern marine facilities, pristine natural beauty, easy access to nearby marine services and an established tourism industry, the new Shute Harbour will be a game-changer for our region.
“Only minutes from Airlie Beach and the closest marine port to the Whitsunday islands, Shute Harbour is a unique opportunity to connect to the heart of the Whitsundays,” he said.
The completely restored terminal will feature a modern, two-story building with café and retail space on the ground floor.
Three finger pontoons are being built which will provide a range of berthing options, a baggage handling area and fuel facility.
A new carpark area, recreational space, fishing jetty and public boat ramp will complete this exciting project.
The Expression of Interest is expected to be released in early July 2020 on Council’s tender website, LGTenderbox, and more information will be available soon.
