Work commences on new Proserpine Entertainment Centre

Work commences on new Proserpine Entertainment Centre
September 16, 2020

Work has commenced on the new Proserpine Entertainment Centre - a project aiming to deliver an economic boost to Proserpine and the broader Whitsunday region.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk advised “while the agricultural sector in the Whitsundays has held up well through COVID, we know the closure of international borders has had a devastating effect on places like Airlie Beach.

“That’s why it’s so important to have projects like the new Proserpine Entertainment Centre that will bring not just social benefits to the local community, but also economic opportunities that can attract more visitors to the region.

“Projects like this in regional Queensland underpin Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan.”

Treasurer Cameron Dick said the additional $8 million investment from the Queensland Government is taking the project from being a dream to a reality and added “when I was up in Bowen earlier this year, Mayor Andrew Willcox impressed on me just how much more important the Proserpine Entertainment Centre would now be as the region recovers from COVID-19.

“Together with projects like the Shute Harbour restoration and Airlie Beach foreshore revitalisation, the new entertainment centre will play a vital role in the region’s economic recovery as tourists return.”

In Proserpine, Premier Palaszczuk also officially reopened the Proserpine Administration Centre which will house approximately 120 staff and will be home to the regional Disaster Coordination Centre and a Climate Change Innovation Hub.
