A date has been set for the grand re-opening.

Daydream Island, one of the Whitsunday's better-known resorts, is in the middle of an immense $65 million overhaul. The renovations are partly a chance to rebuild after the damage caused by Cyclone Debbie, and partly some upgrades that have been a long time coming.

The demolitions are expected to take several weeks, followed by a solid year of rebuilding. According to Daydream's director of sales, Jayson Heron, the resort will be re-opening in October 2018.

"The interest level is high and we look forward to unveiling final details of the redevelopment in the near future." said Heron. "We're proud to once again become a premier Queensland destination of choice for not only holiday makers but also for weddings and conferences."

The expansive upgrades will include a redevelopment of the arrivals pavilion, reception and main atrium area, the Waterfalls Restaurant, Mermaids Restaurant and Lagoons Bar, and all hotel rooms in the resort.

Right now the resort is a construction site, but you can still make bookings ahead of the October 2018 re-opening. If you've ever wanted to stay in a brand new resort in one of the world's most idyllic holiday spots, this might be a great opportunity.

Or, you might swing by and take a look at the ongoing renovations. There are a lot of other accommodation options nearby, but probably none as nice as Daydream will be after its re-opening.
