The planners Adams + Sparks, state “The proposed Resort Complex accommodation and its associated facilities are directly linked to the Waterpark Tourist Attraction and are intended to provide onsite accommodation for customers to the Waterpark, being primarily family orientated”.

“Given the low‐rise built form, being individual villa style accommodation, the proposed Resort will integrate appropriately into the natural surrounds, rather than a building that is 15 metres high in a rural environment.”.

“The proposed Resort Complex accommodation is interlinked by a network of pathways, lawns and other green spaces. Sensitively designed vehicular manoeuvring areas are proposed to facilitate convenient access for patrons to the accommodation areas”.

The development was earmarked for a tourist attraction when a Preliminary Approval for a Sunshine Coast Waterpark Master Plan was approved by Council after it was approved on 2 April 2015 (Council Ref: MCU14/0098) and slightly a change was approved on 16 August 2019 Council Ref: MCU14/0098.03)

The proposal includes 5,857sqm of gross floor areas, with15,420sqm (6.2%) site cover over the 24.77ha overall site area.
