Daydream Island starts demolition

Daydream Island Resort and Spa in the Whitsundays has commenced its demolition program ahead of its long-awaited redevelopment with the cleaning out of damaged facilities.

Construction is expected to gear up in November.

The redevelopment program is on track for an October 2018 soft opening after a $65 million redevelopment following damage caused in March by Cyclone Debbie.

Daydream's Director of Sales and Marketing Jayson Heron said that bookings will be reopening for Daydream from October 16, 2017 for stays from October 2018 onwards.

"We are very pleased to be able to reopen bookings for the resort,” Mr Heron said.

"The interest level is high and we look forward to unveiling final details of the redevelopment in the near future.

Daydream is opening up a sales and marketing office located at Chatswood in Sydney.
