What's open today

IT IS a public holiday in the Whitsundays (and across the state) today, but that does not mean everything has come to a standstill.

The Whitsunday Times has ventured around the traps and found many businesses open today, some in particular might be up the alley of disappointing Melbourne Storm and Collingwood supporters following the weekend's grand finals.

If your business is open and we haven't mentioned it, feel free to drop us a line at or comment on our Facebook page and we'll add you to the list.
