South Molle Island

South Molle Island is a 4.6-square-kilometre island in the heart of the Whitsundays. The hilly Island is well known for its white-sand beaches, pristine coral reefs and extensive national parks.

Project overview

In 2017, South Molle Island resort experienced structural impacts to buildings and the jetty during ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

In 2019, South Molle Resort owners, CCIG Australia, undertook a $140 million redevelopment of nearby Daydream Island.

With the redevelopment and reopening of Daydream Island now complete, CCIG Australia are now focusing on the revitalisation of the South Molle site.

We are supporting the remediation of South Molle Island through the Great Barrier Reef Island Resort Rejuvenation Program, which partners with industry  to clean and green resorts to attract more visitors and generate jobs for the region.

With our support, clean up works and the reconstruction of the jetty are well underway. Both these projects will help restore access for visitors and locals to the island’s national park and 17 km of walking trails.

Project progress

  • completed demolition, clean-up and removal of hazardous building materials and debris from the resort site
  • commenced construction of a new public jetty to give day trip access to the Island’s walking trails.


  • Resort cleaned up and waste removed

  • Restore access to the island’s national park walking trails

  • Remediated site ready for redevelopment
