Mayor Jenny Whitney said Council is once again very pleased to support this annual festival which

fosters tourism and economic development in the Whitsunday region.

“Council will give $5,000 by way of sponsorship for the Reef Festival in addition to waiving

associated fees and charges,” Mayor Whitney said.

“Council will also work with the Reef Festival Committee to provide in-kind support and install the

reef festival street banners to promote the event,” she said.

weekend for families and individuals and to the many visitors that travel to our region.”
