It was announced on Monday 17th December that the Whitsundays will see a $1 million dollar funding boost to market our picture perfect region to key source markets of Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and the regional drive market.

Tourism and Events Queensland will work on a joint campaign with Tourism Whitsundays with the goal to increase visitation and expenditure throughout 2019, timed perfectly with the reopening of iconic island resorts such as Daydream Islandand Hayman Island who are finishing their renovations after Cyclone Debbie.

Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones made the announcement last week saying that the Whitsundays was the jewel in Queensland's tourism crown, and that now was the ideal time to promote the region as a holiday destination.

"Hayman Island and Daydream Island are finalising their renovations after Cyclone Debbie and are due to come back online in the new year,” she said.

"Next year is going to be a huge year for the Whitsundays with so many of our iconic experiences reopening as well as brand new experiences right across the region" she said.

"Industry operators from across the region are behind this campaign, which is so important because tourism is the lifeblood of the Whitsundays community.”
