The development of the breathtaking Pelican Waters Town Centre & Marina project brings many commercial opportunities. Years in the planning, it offers a dynamic mix of dining, retail and commercial opportunities surrounded by a modern mixed-density residential development featuring cutting edge urban design and a relaxed surf-side atmosphere, offering a range of benefits to future residents, investors and commercial operators.







Pelican Waters continues to evolve as one of Queensland’s most desirable destinations to live, work and play with the development of the master planned community’s Town Centre and Marina. Bringing with it a wealth of exciting new lifestyle, residential, business and investment opportunities, the Pelican Waters Town Centre & Marina will create a vibrant new heart for the southern Sunshine Coast while setting new standards for contemporary coastal living.

Years in the planning, Pelican Waters Town Centre & Marina is now being brought to life with a dynamic mix of dining, retail and commercial opportunities now available with the precinct offering a wealth of options for waterfront and main street enterprises.

Built with convenience in mind, the Pelican Waters Town Centre & Marina will be a destination in its own right offering ample parking, medical hub, gym, childcare facilities, restaurants, alfresco cafes and beautiful waterfront boardwalks.

A boating-enthusiast’s paradise, the marina precinct will provide multiple wet berths plus dry stack facility with concierge-style service where boats can be prepped for a perfect, hassle-free day on the water with a simple phone call ahead of time.

Reflecting Pelican Waters’ commitment to the highest environmental standards, the marina will offer a refuelling and pump-out point setting new benchmarks in safety and sustainability.

Overlooking the stunning marina is the dynamic Town Centre creating the ideal environment for business to thrive and people to connect.

Encapsulating Pelican Waters’ passion for eco-friendly, high-quality design, the visually-appealing Town Centre buildings will range from four to six storeys with potential for an iconic feature building up to 10 storeys.

Ground and first floors will offer opportunities for multiple levels of business including commercial and corporate offices plus traditional mainstream and waterfront retail.

The upper floors bring a new era of residential living for the southern Sunshine Coast featuring a range of contemporary lifestyle apartments to suit all tastes and budgets, with Pelican Waters’ best attributes on the doorstep. Taking good looks and liveability to a new level, the development will include walkable foreshores extending from the marina and town centre hub to the existing Pelican Waters Tavern and local shopping centre complete with Woolworths and Coles supermarkets.

Numerous opportunities for social interaction, fitness and leisure will be carefully integrated, with an  impressive three-hectare Village Park adjacent the Town Centre set to become one of Pelican Waters’ most popular destinations to relax, recharge and reconnect.

Streets are designed for ease of vehicle access plus safe pedestrian and cycle use with the scope to be closed for special purposes such as markets and cultural festivals.

The project’s epicenter, the Town Centre Island, will offer CBD inspired higher density living close to main street businesses and alfresco eateries while enjoying a world-class waterfront setting, marina views and sea breezes.

In the two decades to 2026, the number of people over the age of 65 is predicted to more than double, while the number of people over the age of 85 is likely to almost treble. Although this is also occurring nationally, the impacts are experienced earlier and more profoundly in sea change communities like the Sunshine Coast. The aging population has many implications including increased expenditure associated with health and disability services and increased need for family and community care (SCC Community Planning Fact Sheet 02).
