Australia: Sunshine Park closer to going ahead

In partnership with:

Sunshine Coast Council has given preliminary approval to a proposed resort and waterpark, which will include the world’s largest wave pool, to be located on the Sunshine Coast.

The $90 million project will also include a hotel, holiday village, restaurants and function facilities.

Divisional councillor Rick Baberowski said the resort and water park would complement Sunshine Coast’s strongest international brand in Australia Zoo as well as The Big Cart Track and Aussie World, which are all located within close proximity.

“This is one of the most important tourist attractions council has considered in a long time,” he said.

“The world’s first hi-tech wave pool will be valuable in our quest to promote the region as a national and international destination.

“This development will create 400 jobs during construction and another 250 ongoing jobs upon opening.

“The resort accommodation is sorely needed on the southern end of the Sunshine Coast and will benefit those townships in that area.”

Planning portfolio councillor Christian Dickson said a number of conditions had been included in the preliminary approval to address water, sewerage and flooding issues.
