Marano’s Fuel to open new 24-hour service station in Tully in 2024

The first sod has been turned on the construction of Marano’s Fuel’s new service station in Tully, the 15th site in the fully independent and locally-owned company’s expanding network of service stations across North Queensland.


The Tully site, located at the intersection of the Bruce Highway and Andersen Street, will be a 24-hour service station and is expected to open in mid-2024, creating around 20 jobs for the local community.


The turning of the soil was attended by representatives of Marano’s Fuel, Cassowary Coast Regional Council, KEIR Qld, National Australia Bank and SHAS Group, all of which were glad to see the project move from planning to construction.


The new service station features will include:

  • Sit down café-style dining

  • Complete commercial kitchen

  • Heavy vehicle access and trucker’s shower

  • High-flow diesel and Adblue at the bowser.


Marano’s Fuel Chief Executive Officer Angelo Marano said the new Tully service station had been a long-term strategic goal of the organisation.


“The addition of another service station to our existing portfolio of locations will ensure that we are able to continue to service our network of pre-existing clients in the Tully area,” said Mr Marano.


“It will also showcase our exemplary level of customer service which sets us apart from the rest of the market.


“The site marks another significant milestone for our company, and we’re proud to provide a locally-owned, independent service station to our already strong customer base in the region.”


Cassowary Coast Regional Council Division 1 Councillor Barry Barnes attended the ground breaking and clearing ceremony, and welcomed Marano’s Fuel to the Tully community.


“It will be fantastic to see the fuel market competitive in Tully, saving our residents money, providing great service, and creating job opportunities,” said Cr Barnes.


“It will be great to see the project come to life throughout the coming months.”


Marano’s Fuel has proudly distributed fuel and oils to North Queensland businesses and communities for more than 75 years.

The company provides customers with a network of service stations in Cairns, Port Douglas, Mossman, the Tablelands, and Cooktown, and is well equipped to manage both bulk fuel and oil and lubricant deliveries across the region.
