Daydream Island set for evacuation: Guests on bottled water

DAYDREAM Island Resort is set to be evacuated after the exclusive getaway destination's water supply was damaged by Tropical Cyclone Debbie. 

However guests stuck at the resort may face lengthy delays as the rain and wind following the now ex-cyclone's tail continue to hamper efforts. 

"At this stage, it is not certain when that will be possible as weather conditions in the region are still not ideal," a Daydream Island spokesman said of the evacuation measures.  

"Efforts are also being hampered by damage to key transport infrastructure on Daydream and in the region. We are hoping to get further clarity later today as to when commercial flights will resume out of the Whitsundays."

"Town water supplies have been interrupted to the island. Bottled water is being provided to guests and we are endeavouring to make them as comfortable as possible.

"We'd like to thank all our guests for their ongoing patience and cooperation during this difficult time."
