Willis Island (Bureau of Meteorology, Weather Station) 

The project comprises of a weather outstation, category 5 building (820m2) and was a challenging logistically and environmentally managed procedure, with the island located 450km off shore, east of Cairns.

 

Completed in November 2006, the Willis Island Weather Monitoring station is usually manned by four weather observers living on the island, one of whom is Officer-in-Charge, and one Technical Officer (electronic engineering).

 

Historically, the Willis Island weather monitoring station was established in 1921 and equipped with a radio transmitter in order to provide a cyclone early warning service for Queensland. Laurie Lindner Constructions' Wills Island project won the MBA 2007 Innovation in Environmental Management Award.
