More progress at Port of Airlie

By Mark Beale

CHANGES are afoot at the Port of Airlie development, which despite operating under the management of receivers, is continuing to grow.

The newly completed boardwalk, from the soon-to-be-completed Cruise Whitsundays maritime terminal to the Airlie CBD, has expanded the town centre to the water’s edge, bringing a retail bonus for both Airlie Beach and Port of Airlie tenants.

Denman’s Cellars owners Ben and Daniel Hayman said their unique beer and tapas bar was thriving on the foot traffic the boardwalk was bringing – so much so that they would be expanding their business into adjoining premises.

Aimer Accessory’s owner Meredith Moloney, said she was also looking forward to increased foot traffic “and seeing Airlie Beach’s residents and guests enjoy the buzz that Port of Airlie has to offer”.

Meanwhile, Port of Airlie’s latest waterfront subdivision, The Cove, has proven “hot property”, with seven lots snapped up in a recent pre-release.

Port of Airlie sales manager Andrew Forster said the rarity of these lots – within an exclusive, secure, gated community and alongside a marina – should not be underestimated.

“While people recognise the Whitsundays as an aquatic paradise, the simple fact is there is a scarcity of waterfront property in the area. The Cove’s 23 lots provide rare opportunities to buy this type of land, which has not already been built on or developed and is right on the doorstep of a state-of-the-art transit hub and secure marina for owners’ boats,” he said.

Airlie Beach-based civil engineering contractors Allciv are undertaking the construction of The Cove, which is due for completion in coming weeks.

Allciv director Brett Thiele said he was excited to be working on such an exclusive local project.
