MULTIMILLION DOLLAR MARINA SETS SAIL
It’s all hands on deck at Pelican Waters as the first dedicated marina for the Sunshine Coast in 40 years enters construction.
Floating high on extraordinary business and investor confidence for the region, the multimillion-dollar project is delivering approximately 100 jobs in construction and another 100 ongoing roles in marina, retail, hospitality and other speciality services.
We are very proud to be delivering this significant infrastructure project for the region, further highlighting the southern Sunshine Coast’s reputation as an ideal location for exceptional business and lifestyle opportunities.
On completion the development will offer a fully serviced marina and boat stack facility plus a waterside town centre style precinct offering retail and medical services known as the Marina Village providing residents and visitors alike premium waterfront experiences all year round
Local marine construction company The Jetty Specialists are expected to complete the installation of pilings into the marina basin by March, to be closely followed by the installation of floating wet berths for the future mooring of 126 vessels up to 15 metres.
Construction is also imminent for the associated marina facilities including fuel wharf providing unleaded and diesel fuels, sewage pump-out station, ensuite amenities and client lounge.
We are working with the Caloundra Coast Guard who have indicated their intentions to utilise our marina services while communicating the latest local navigational information, passage and bar conditions to our boating public.
Fellow Sunshine Coast company QTM Enterprises has been engaged for the associated landward marina works comprising a new 160 boat dry-stacker, boatyard, supporting marine-industry businesses and cafe.
Pelican Waters has made a point of engaging local marine engineering experts for this significant development milestone for the Sunshine Coast. Construction is now powering ahead and we expect completion of both the marina and landward works by the end of the year.
The development presents a range of exciting business opportunities in the marine sector such as shipwright repairs and maintenance, marine mechanics and electrics, canvassing and trimming, chandlery and more.
Our office is receiving strong enquiry levels for these operations as well as from booties looking to secure their marina berth. We would encourage any interested parties to visit the Pelican Waters website to register their interest, as the opportunities are limited.
A number of marquee tenants have already been secured for the associated Marina Village lifestyle precinct which will be home to an IGA market, Moffat Beach Brewery and medical businesses plus scope for waterfront dining, boutique cafes, fitness studios and beauty salon.
There is little doubt this highly anticipated marina project which is now under construction will reshape the way we live, work and play on the Sunshine Coast as the first dedicated facility of this scope and calibre for the region in many decades.
CASTAWAYS POCKET NOW SELLING
Pelican Waters has unveiled its latest land release, Castaways Pocket, as demand for coastal homesites continues to surge.
The new release offers something for everybody featuring 29 lots in total including nine premium waterfront homesites and a wide selection of residential lots close to the water and Central Park.
A further eight exciting new terrace home sites overlooking the park will follow.
The lots range in size from low maintenance lots up to large waterfront sites of 900 sqm-plus.
The exclusive residential enclave is nestled between a large central park and wide canal frontage on the emerging marina village and island precinct, connected with a soonto-be finished pedestrian bridge linking to the southern end of the master planned community.
Offering easy access to the walkable foreshores on the new canal system, buyers will have pedestrian and cycle or scooter access along the waterfront all the way to the Pelican Waters Marina, Marina Village and beyond to Pelican Waters Shopping Village and Tavern.
A colourful array of feature lights will illuminate the way, showcasing the new bridges and parks.
Given the demand for quality land and the success of previous releases, the advice to prospective buyers would be to act now.
Having the water on your doorstep, an array of parks plus the bordering Pumicestone Passage creates a unique lifestyle that is keenly sought after.
An expressions of interest campaign launches March 11 for the highly-anticipated release.
Pelican Waters’ previous land offering, Navigators II, was 100% sold within weeks of its release late last year, with all but one lot sold. A number of lots were held back due to the pedestrian bridge construction and these should be released in April.

A BIG BEETLE AND FRISBEE FUN
A big beetle, bike track, barbecues and frisbee fun – it’s all part of the 4.3-hectare Jensen Park currently well under construction and due for completion mid-2022.
This unique space is split into active and passive zones, comprising approximately three hectares of themed recreation and family facilities and the remainder dedicated to rehabilitation and retention of the Bells Creek tidal inlet.
A main feature of active play zone will be a large shade structure modelled off the colourful Harlequin Beetle, one of the original inhabitants of the Caloundra foreshore. Park visitors can also get energised on the wide range of unique play equipment, custom bike circuit, cycle tracks and walkways and the southern region’s first frisbee golf oval.
A small pedestrian bridge linking Diamond Head with Pelican Waters will complete this zone which provides the final link in the chain for the 73km Coastal Pathway eventually linking Pelican Waters to Coolum.
Jensen Park comes hot on the heels of the recent completion of last hectare of our Waterfront Park in front of The Cove development, linking The Island with the upcoming Marina Precinct. It’s great to see residents and visitors enjoying this open space spilling out from popular meeting place, The Cove cafe with its great coffee, evening drinks and entertainment.
Watch this space for more park news, with plans afoot to deliver the final hectare of Central Park by the end of the year complete with cricket oval, fitness equipment and zip line.
