If lockdown has had the kids climbing the walls, Pelican Waters will soon have the answer as plans for the region’s first outdoor parkour facility take shape at the master planned community’s new island precinct. The parkour circuit will be a central feature of stage one of the large 2ha activity park expected for completion early 2021.
The Finnish-designed equipment draws inspiration from urban landscapes to promote creative movement including climbing, jumping, swinging, balancing and vaulting. The course includes state-of-the-art climbing frames, balance rails, platforms and walls.
“The parkour sports park is in keeping with Pelican Waters’ philosophy of creating active spaces for all age groups in the community,’’ Mr Pressland said.
“This equipment is designed to unleash the inner Ninja Warrior in all of us. It’s a motivation for teenagers to put down electronic devices and engage in some fun outdoor activity. We also see it as a great meeting place and a way of promoting interaction between generations,’’ he said.
The parkour zone is just one part of the grand Central Park currently under construction at the southern end of the Sunshine Coast where a world-class marina and associated waterfront shopping and dining hub is also being built.
Positioned next to the Parkour will be a custom design basketball and netball court providing opportunities for a wide range of age groups to practice shooting hoops and keep active.
If that sounds all too much and you are looking for something a bit quieter, maybe something that could even be played with a cold drink in the hand, why not have a family game of Bocce on the new Bocce Court.
Other features within the new park will include a large covered BBQ and picnic table plaza raised to overlook the sports field with multi-use goal posts for both league and soccer. Feature lighting will set off the park at night and there will also be a large carpark.
Other new projects are powering ahead as COVID lockdowns drive unprecedented interstate demand for the idyllic Queensland lifestyle.
Having sold almost all available land, we are on the verge of unveiling two prime residential land releases, while premium terrace house and land packages under construction continue to fuel strong downsizer demand.

LAND & TERRACE HOMES UPDATE
Inquiry from interstate, particularly Victoria, is high. We have sold all available land and are moving to get as much product as possible ready to meet demand.
There has been massive interest in our terrace product from the south, meanwhile Queenslanders are realising the window of opportunity is now before the borders re-open.
Tailor-made homes in Maranoa Lane are selling quickly, with one selling and three going under contract in recent weeks ranging from $600,000 to $750,000, leaving just one remaining opportunity.
The Signature Terrace Collection on the emerging Island and Marina Precinct has also performed well with two sales and two new builds commencing plus the construction of the first display terrace is almost complete so come down and walk through this beautiful new display.
Residential homesites are also lying out the door with the last four currently available lots located metres from parkland, canals and future waterfront cafes selling within three weeks of going on the market ranging from $385,000 to $470,000.
A boutique collection of nine new lots are in the works, adjoining the future Central Park on the new island. Due for official launch in November or December this year, the lots will range in size from 400sqm to 650sqm.
More land opportunities are on the horizon in March – April next year when Pelican Waters releases its next range of waterfront lots. This offering will feature a collection of 36 waterfront, park view and waterview homesites ranging from 400sqm to 800sqm in size, with prices yet to be announced.
OUR TRANSITION INTO A WORLD CLASS BOATIES’ PARADISE IS GAINING STEAM WITH NEW WET BERTHS AND UNDERCOVER STORAGE NOW UP FOR GRABS AHEAD OF THE MARINA’S OFFICIAL OPENING IN LATE 2021.
Years in the planning, Pelican Waters Marina will provide convenient, cost effective wet berths and undercover storage removing the hassle of towing, parking and boat ramp queues.
The marina will be complete with power, fresh water, fuel and an equipped chandlery open seven days a week. We will also operate a full service marina yard catering for all maintenance, detailing and repair work.
Dry boat storage is one of the fastest growing forms of boat storage in the world and a phone call is all it takes to have your boat launched, retrieved and placed into dry storage. Strong inquiry is already flooding in for the 160 dry stack storage spaces for vessels up to 10m, and the 125 wet berths available for boats up to 15m in length.
A surrounding marina village will feature waterfront cafes, restaurants and specialty businesses.
With the population increasing around the southern end particularly, the marina will provide options for new and existing residents who may not have thought they could own and store a boat.
It will provide a very safe harbour and support services second to none. Located in the heart of a vibrant built-up environment, the facility is completely protected from seas and winds.
Meanwhile, a new bridge and associated roadworks under construction is putting our exciting new island precinct on the path to completion.
The eastern bridge linking the marina and shopping centre to Golden Beach residents via Michael Street is expected to open by December.
It’s one of the major pieces of the puzzle, opening the island precinct, new marina and everything else Pelican Waters has to offer to residents from the Golden Beach side of the estate, through Michael Street and Anning Avenue.
The bridge construction coincides with associated external roadworks including new roundabouts, footpath and reprioritising traffic low onto Anning Avenue.
The plan is to improve traffic movement by creating a continuous low for vehicles northbound from Michael Street into Anning Avenue. These works have been required by council in an effort to modify driver behaviour.
The scope of works also includes a pedestrian pathway from Anning Avenue and the Pelican Waters boundary with Diamond Head, a roundabout at the intersection of Beryl and Michael Streets, and another roundabout at Roy St, Golden Beach.
Stay tuned for future updates.
Do you know that in 1974, Michael Street was planned, and the road dedicated as a road reserve on a survey plan, to ultimately connect with the Bruce Highway. That is why it is so wide! The connection was eventually changed through years of development planning so that Michael Street only formed a link with Pelican Waters.
Do you know that the Pelican Waters developers constructed the Bevan Henzell Bridge near the Powerboat Club in 1993 to provide the residents of Diamond Head and Pelican Waters a link over the then Lamerough Creek, now Lamerough Canal.
AN UPDATE FROM OAKTREE!
Construction is progressing well and believe it or not, actually on time and in line with the program.
As the bright red scaffold is being removed, the contemporary architecture is slowly revealing itself and we are looking forward to welcoming residents from April 2021.
The display apartment is now open for inspection by appointment, and our sales ofice located on Anning Street, Golden Beach is open Monday – Friday 10am to 2pm for anyone wanting to learn more about our Retirement Community.
Feedback from incoming residents and prospective purchasers has been extremely positive, with location and proximity to the new Marina precinct, recreation and retail being a key influence in their decision to move in.
The all-inclusive maintenance and service model has been very well received along with the many benefits of living within a purpose design and built community where residents can maintain independence and simply live an easier life.
