Dreamtime Island

With our support, Dreamtime Island will become an iconic must-do experience on the Great Barrier Reef, driving visitors to the Cairns region.

Project overview

We are backing the development of Dreamtime Island – a new floating activity platform that will showcase Indigenous culture.

Dreamtime Island will be a significant floating activity platform on the Great Barrier Reef, and will incorporate a reef science hub with a focus on sustainable eco-tourism that will value, protect and reduce impacts on the environment.

This project is a part of the $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure (GTI) Fund 2020/21, and is a key element of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.

Benefits

  • Create 21 jobs during construction

  • Significant floating activity platform on the Great Barrier Reef

  • 25 ongoing jobs once operational
