Tourism Recovery Fund builds new Sunshine Coast attractions

Published:

Three Sunshine Coast tourism businesses are investing in fresh attractions with the assistance of the Palaszczuk Government’s $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund.

Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said Aussie World, Bellingham Maze and Tree Top Adventure Park would share in $1.84 million.

“We know tourism is critical to the Sunshine Coast’s economic recovery plan,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“That’s why the Palaszczuk Government is working closely with tourism businesses to help the industry come back from COVID-19 stronger than ever.

“The three fresh attractions for the Sunshine Coast are worth a combined $4.5 million and are expected to deliver almost 50 jobs during construction and operation.”

Aussie World will harness the thrill of speed with a new rollercoaster ride to complement the recently installed Swing Ride.

Bellingham Maze is combining its a’maze’ing outdoor maze with an immersive, virtual reality maze experience.

And, work is underway on a Junior adventure challenge for 3 to 9-year-olds at the Tree Top Adventure Park.

Member for Nicklin Rob Skelton said the Junior Tree Top Adventure would be the biggest of its kind in Australia.

“As the Big Pineapple has demonstrated over the years, the Sunshine Coast isn’t half hearted when it comes to the scale of its tourist attractions,” Mr Skelton said.

“These projects - funded in partnership with the Palaszczuk Government’s Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund - continue the Coast’s tradition of creating destination tourism infrastructure.”

Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt said the fresh attractions would bring more visitors to the Sunshine Coast.

“Once built, almost 70,000 extra visitors every year are predicted to make their way to the Sunshine Coast for a unique tourism experience,” Mr Hunt said.

“Additional visitors to these new attractions alone are estimated to boost the Sunshine Coast’s economy by nearly $4 million every year.

“The Palaszczuk Government’s Growing Infrastructure Fund is helping the Sunshine Coast to grow from COVID as one of Australia’s favourite holiday playgrounds.”
