Construction is well underway and all estimates suggest the island will reopen in less than a year, but we managed to get our hands on some early renderings of what the property will look like post-redevelopment.

Daydream Island is currently undergoing a demolition and construction program in the Whitsundays in order to repair the damage caused by Cyclone Debbie in March this year.

Some $86 million is being invested in the property, General Manager Dawson Tang believes will impress guests and create employment opportunities in the region.

The property is officially expected to reopen in October next year, but reopen bookings are already on sale and receiving “high interest”.

“We’re proud to once again become a premier Queensland destination of choice for not only holiday makers but also for weddings and conferences.”

Dawson Tang, Daydream Island General Manager

As part of the redevelopment program, the entire property will receive a makeover, such as the Lovers Cove function area, which will be expanded, while a new Asian-inspired restaurant is built to cater to guests’ various cravings.

Changes will be made to the Arrivals pavilion, Reception, main Atrium area, Waterfalls restaurant and Lagoons bar, the rooms, Mermaids Restaurant as well as the conference facilities.
