February has started a little wet, but perfect weather for enjoying the beautiful bush walks throughout the Whitsundays. The Airlie Creek walk is particularly beautiful in the wet season when the creek is running, so be sure to get the walking shoes on and give it a try.
For those in town during the Chinese New Year celebrations, head into Airlie Beach on February 5th for the 8pm fireworks at Boathaven Beach. At Mirage Whitsundays, there is a new Asian fusion restaurant – Mira Ambrosia, as well as Fish D’Vine in Airlie Beach, who are both offering special menus for the celebrations.
Don’t forget Valentines Day on February 14th! Treat your loved one to a romantic meal at Sorrento Bar & Restaurant in the north village or perhaps order a seafood platter through Fishi Whitsundays (see attached) and celebrate onboard with a nice bottle of wine!
Hemingway’s restaurant in the south marina closed last month. We will be making some modifications to help weather proof the space for future use and we are looking forward to a new restaurant offering opening in the same space in time for the cruising season.
The Whitsunday Festival of Motoring will take place throughout the region 3 – 5 May. Friday 3rd May will see a large opening party held at the marina. This is a free event and all guests are welcome. If you are the owner of a classic or vintage car and are interested in participating in a show and shine static display, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If health and wellness is a focus for you in 2019, we have some great outdoor fitness class options available at the marina. Due to popular demand, a second Pilates session has now been scheduled for every Sunday at Lure. Starting on February 10th at 7am, this early session will run before the current 8am session. The 8am will be held as usual. All welcome. Don’t forget also, Boxing classes on Tuesdays at 5.45pm and Sunset Yoga on Thursdays at 5.30pm – both on the grassed area at the top of M/N arm.
We have a new Marina Guest Survey, which we would greatly appreciate your assistance in completing. It should only take 5 – 10 minutes and surveys are available at reception (north and south offices). As a thank you for your time, we are giving all participants a bottle of bubbles to enjoy! As always, if you would like to discuss current berthing specials or extending your stay at Abell Point Marina, please come and speak with us at the office.
