Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited

Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited (WMDL) is the Whitsunday region's peak economic development and tourism marketing agency. We facilitate our region's growth through attracting new business, investment and infrastructure, and marketing our region to visitors and potential new residents. WMDL was formed in 2012 by the merger of Enterprise Whitsundays and Tourism Whitsundays to form one strong economic development and destination marketing agency for the Whitsundays region. 

Our vision is that the Whitsundays be globally recognised as a vibrant, progressive community in which to live, work, play and invest with a regional economy that is diverse, sustainable and delivering long term benefits for the Whitsundays community.

WMDL has restructured

As of 1 April 2016, Whitsundays Marketing and Development has restructured. We have split into two separate organisations: Tourism Whitsundays and Whitsunday Economic Development.

For tourism services and information, please visit www.tourismwhitsundays.com.au or call 07 4945 3967.

For economic development queries, please ring 0427 255 882.

For more information on the restructure, please see our media release.
