Gold rush

The Whitsundays tourism and marine economy combined with sustained above-average population growth are driving the region’s “golden era of growth”, according to a report by research group Aurelius.

Presenting his State of the Whitsundays findings in Airlie Beach 10 November, Aurelius director Peter Bell estimates the Whitsundays could see its tourism economy grow by an extra $600 million to $2.14 billion by 2025 if new initiatives currently in train come to fruition.

Mr Bell’s presentation highlights that the region is already a major tourism drawcard with the visitor market expected to be worth $1.53 billion in the next three years, but the infrastructure spending currently under way in the region will significantly accelerate the tourism economy.

The top end of his forecast will see a doubling of the value of the local tourism economy over the seven years to 2025, building on an economic pillar that Mr Bell said remains pivotal to the region’s future.
