Heritage Heart of the Whitsundays, Proserpine is ready for a big year!
First up, we invite you to explore Whitsunday Gold – Australia’s largest coffee plantation! After extensive refurbishment and redevelopment Whitsunday Gold has opened its doors and is welcoming visitors to the region, as well as locals, to enjoy a traditionally Queensland experience.
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 undergoing some new infrastructure to heighten the enjoyment of those making the visit. From newly renovated amenities, a new campsite on the banks of the lake, and BBQ facilities, it is the place to be to enjoy some fresh water sports including fishing, wake-boarding, tube riding or jet skiing. Stay a little longer and even make camp for the night. 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 Coral Sea Marina Resort 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.
