As we continue to progress the Great Barrier Reef Arena & Events precinct development, I wanted to share with you a brief video shining a light on the project and its enormous benefits to our local region and communities. 

As you will see in the video, the project architects – Cox Architecture - have completed the first stage of a stunning fly-through preview of the finished works, bringing the new Arena precinct to life which perfectly complements our tropical lifestyle, local aesthetic and community focus.
