Heritage Heart of the Whitsundays, Proserpine is ready for a big 2019!
Kicking off the new year right is Whitsunday Gold – Australia’s largest coffee plantation is coming back bigger and better than ever! After extensive refurbishment and redevelopment Whitsunday Gold will be opening its doors and welcoming you back.
At Whitsunday Gold you’ll get to see the whole coffee process, from bean to roast to grind to cup. The site will house one of the biggest under indoor children’s play areas in the Whitsunday region. A much-welcomed child-friendly feature for those looking for amazing coffee and delicious food, a place to catch up with friends and family (while the kids safely run free).
Lake Proserpine, The Whitsundays Barramundi haven is set for a huge infrastructure development in 2019 through its redevelopment we’ll see a new recreation center with exciting water sports features, new accessible jetties, camping facilities right near the lake, and if you’re more for the ‘glamping’ new cabins are being created. Make sure to give our friends at Barra World a call, they’ll make sure you’re fishing all the good holes at Lake Proserpine.
Another welcomed feature during these gloriously hot summer days has been the new Water Park on Anzac Street. The Proserpine Water Park is free community initiative, a cooling off hub for the little ones to splash and enjoy.
A stroll down Proserpine Main Street is not only about sighting some of the most exceptional art deco buildings, but also a place to find some charming boutique shopping. Favourites of Abell Point Marina are Ginger & Blonde Co, Cherry Baby Boutique, Epicure Homewares and Colour Me Crazy – you will be sure to find a gem in one of this locally owned and operated stores.
