Hemingway’s to open at Abell Point Marina
11 May, 2017
Another significant addition to the Abell Point offer launches this weekend, 12 May, just in time for the start of the cruising season. With the marina making good progress with the restoration works after TC Debbie passed through the Whitsundays at the end of March, the opening of Hemingway’s is a positive development for marina guests and the wider Whitsunday region.
Located in the heart of the award-winning Abell Point Marina precinct, Hemingway’s will offer modern Australian cuisine in a relaxed waterfront setting. After a full renovation, including assembling an incredible team of experienced hospitality staff, Abell Point are excited to introduce Hemingway’s to the Whitsunday food scene.
As the main tourism hub for the Whitsunday region, Abell Point Marina has emerged over the last four years as an award-winning destination marina. With the already successful Italian restaurant, Sorrento Restaurant and Bar, as well as Bohemian Raw, organic/ raw food café, the subsequent addition of Hemingway’s, means Abell Point Marina now has a superb range of dining options to provide both guests and visitors to the region.
In time for the restaurant opening and the arrival of the first superyachts for 2017 into region, the brand-new walkway to L arm was installed today. The original totally destroyed in the cyclone, the replacement has been under construction for the last 5 weeks and was craned onto a barge, then moved into position this morning. This development marks another significant milestone of the restoration project. In addition, damaged pontoons throughout the marina have been removed to make space for the newly constructed replacements to be fitted gradually over the next 6 weeks. The entire restoration process is scheduled to be finalized by the end of July, however the marina is remains fully operational and open for business.
The team at Abell Point will be heading down south to the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous at the Gold Coast City Marina this month, followed by the ASMEX conference and then will be exhibiting at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (25 – 28 May). The message that will be spread to industry colleagues and customers is that Abell Point and the Whitsundays are very much back in business.
With the cruising season imminent and the annual migration north for many boaties in the planning, Abell Point are hosting a Cruising Season Launch Party (2-4 June). The event is open to all marina guests and the schedule of events is another reason to make the trip north to the Whitsundays. As the weather cools down south, there has been no better time to escape and set sail to Abell Point Marina.
