Queensland recovers after Cyclone Debbie


The marine industry continues to cleanup and repair businesses after Tropical Cyclone Debbie made landfall on March 28 in Queensland, Australia. The northeastern part of the country was damaged in the category 4 storm that recorded winds as high as 163 mph.

The Australian marine industry reported that although some of the major resorts are closed for repairs, several facilities including Abell Point Marina and Hamilton Island Marina are open.

“Whilst it will be a short while to get our services and facilities up and running to our normal standard, our focus is in ensuring our customers are free to explore the beautiful Whitsundays this season,” said Luke McCaul, general manager of Abell Point Marina in Airlie Beach.

“Our marina has a few repairs required, but largely the marina is in good shape, and it’s business as normal,” said James Burrell, general manager of Hamilton Island Marina, in a news release. “The Whitsundays is open for business.”
