Tourism park giant proposes $50 million Sunshine Coast family resort


A family-owned Sunshine Coast golf course could be transformed into a $50 million tourist park with 359 powered and unpowered sites catering for a range of short-stay accommodation.

The Glenview Par 3 Golf Course on Steve Irwin Way, Glenview would make way for the park according to a development application submitted to the Sunshine Coast Council.

Discovery Park, the largest owner and operator of lifestyle holiday parks in Australia, is behind the project.


Activities on the 29-hectare site to entice visitors to stay would include basketball half court/key pump track, jumping pillow, nine-hole mini golf course, nature play/adventure playground areas, “Byron-style” camp kitchen, barbecue facilities and two pools.


The application shows a breakdown of the proposed accommodation options include: • 203 x Powered Sites • 35 x Unpowered Sites • 32 x En-Suite Sites; • 20 x Superior Cabins; • 35 x Standard Cabins; • 10 x Deluxe Cabins; • 24 x 2 Storey Cabins;

The proposed park sits near Mooloolah River National Park and the site is also close to major tourist attractions including Australia Zoo (9km), the Big Kart Track (3km), Aussie World (6.7km) and the future Sanad Capital’s approved wave park and villas on Steve Irwin Way (1km).


It includes 359 car park spaces, located adjacent to the sites/cabins.

The site is situated at 3574 Steven Irwin Way.

Discovery Parks has more than 60 parks around the country.
