Waterside New Precinct - Opening Update

Whilst the weather has been against us this week in undertaking the final works for the new residential precinct at Waterside, we have managed to open up the park and a number of roads to the public.

By Thursday afternoon (today), the construction fencing that has surrounded the site for the last 7 months will have been relocated to open most of the new roads and the park. The roads open include:

  • Bledisloe Boulevard extension down to Bells Esplanade
  • Comet Street
  • Severn Place
  • Burdekin Place
  • Barcoo Lane

The only road that will not be open will be the section of Bells Esplanade road east of the roundabout as indicated on the accompanying plan.

The much anticipated park is open however please note that there is still unfinished elements. The BBQ is not yet in as the manufacturer has not yet completed the work. We will aim to have this done before the end of the school holidays. However, the playground is ready for kids, the shelters are up and furniture installed. There are still some further activities for kids to be put around the kick and throw area as well, and of course still loads of plants to be installed. The water may also not be on as we are still waiting for the local authority signoff so please be aware of this. Hopefully the rain will clear so that you can use the park over the Easter weekend.

We will also be sending out our Pelican View newsletter soon with more information about the park and surrounding precinct and other happenings in Pelican Waters.

From all of us at Pelican Waters, have a Happy and Safe Easter and most importantly enjoy the new park.

New Flood Mapping Model

Sunshine Coast Council has just released new flood mapping for the Sunshine Coast region. This mapping replaces the previous inaccurate mapping that was released a few years ago. The new mapping is available through the Council website using the following link:

The maps reflect the two different flood scenarios, specifically:

We are pleased to see that Council has released the new mapping, as the previous maps were misleading because they were based on old aerial survey data. The old survey didn’t reflect construction of our northern lake system.

It’s also pleasing to see all residential lots in Pelican Waters above the 100 year flood level in the year 2100, particularly as the 2100 modelling includes full allowance for climate change. Obviously we design Pelican Waters to offer very high level of flood immunity but it’s nice to see it reflected in the latest modelling.

We have extracted an image from the Council mapping over the northern part of Pelican Waters to give you an idea of how it looks.

Please contact our office if you have any queries in regard to the mapping.  


Only 133 Years In The Making!

What would William Landsborough think of what’s been made of his land....

Queen Victoria’s deed of grant to William Landsborough in recognition of his services to exploration on the 17th October, 1881 has morphed into something entirely different from the sheep farm he envisioned.He named the property Loch Lamerough and was buried here in 1886.  He was reinterred at Toowong Cemetery in 1913. In his search for Burke & Wills he became the first explorer to cross the continent from north to south.

Loch Lamerough was purchased by Roy Henzell on 10th January 1946 and has remained in the family since.
