Sanad Capital has released concept plans for the Actventure leisure park site on the Sunshine Coast of Australia and hopes to begin bulk earthworks in the coming weeks.
Actventure is a A$450m ($358m) integrated lifestyle, tourist and leisure park development from Sanad Capital on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.
The initial plans drawn up will cover around 8 hectares of the 25-hectare Actventure site. Sanad Capital is planning a large glamping component for the accommodation as well as a mix of cabins and powered sites.
Leisure facilities in the first-stage plans include a tennis court, gym, children’s play area and a pool area featuring slides and boomerango.
Bradley Sutherland, CEO of Sanad Capital, said: “Luxury camping has become an appealing option for holidaymakers across the globe.
“The Sunshine Coast desperately requires more rooms to accommodate the rising tourism numbers, and with more and more families’ keen to have the glamping experience rather than staying in a hotel, we thought what better way to satisfy that demand than place a focus on it within our masterplan. It fits perfectly with our branding.”
Sanad Capital is an offshoot of Dubai-based investment group Najibi. Its plans for Actventure, previously known as ACTVE, would see the full 25-hectare site eventually include a 6,000sqm retail and restaurant precinct, a great lawn for events, a hotel and an action sports precinct. Additionally, an indoor sports training centre with parkour, gymnastics and more are in the works.
Finalisation with contractors for the bulk earthworks are almost at close and a decision is expected in the coming weeks. Sanad received approval from the local authority to begin the earthworks last September.
