Former Home and Away heart-throb Lincoln Lewis has been announced as the new ambassador for Daydream Island, located in Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands.
Born and raised in Brisbane, the Aussie actor will be among the first to explore the new Daydream Island when it re-opens in April 2019.
Sustainability and marine wildlife conservation will be at the forefront of his new role, as well as the all-important job of test driving the island’s experiences such as snorkelling, jet skiing, stand-up paddle boarding and helicopter rides.
“I’m stoked to be working with an such an iconic Australian holiday destination, really being able to explore the very best of the Whitsundays region,” said Lewis.
“Daydream Island is the perfect destination for an action-packed adventure, developing your knowledge about the local marine life through their Living Reef or just lounging by the pool taking in the view – I can’t wait to do it all!”
Lewis said his father, NRL great Wally Lewis, had visited Daydream Island previously.
“My parents have been before and Dad first went on an end of season footy trip in the late 70s,” he said. “Now it’s time to pass the torch and I’ll be sure to send the family photos from paradise!”
As part of his new role, Lewis will work with the team of resident marine biologists at Daydream Island’s Living Reef to help spread the word on marine life and reef conservation.
The island resort will relaunch after an extensive two-year redevelopment, following Cyclone Debbie which caused significant damage to the island in early 2017.
