Plans for a $350m resort for Bundaberg

Bundaberg is set to get a $350 million marina resort village at Fairymead.

The proposed village, which would be built on land owned by Bundaberg Sugar and will include 150 villas, about 400 units, residential and backpacker accommodation as well as a marina harbour.

Geoff Burchill of Burchill Strategic Projects has gained support from both the state and federal governments to seek out investors for the Coral Coast Marina Resort Village development.

Mr Burchill said the project cannot happen unless the council approved flood mitigation, which included flood modelling and the construction of by-pass channels.

Cardno, an international engineering consultancy firm engaged by Mr Burchill, has estimated a cost of about $28,000 to undertake the flood modelling – a bill Mr Burchill said should be shared between his company, Bundaberg Regional Council and the Port of Bundaberg.

Mr Burchill said the Coral Coast Marina Resort Village was one of six projects chosen to be presented on the international stage during a Tourism Australia and Austrade mission to China on 1 July.

Mr Burchill was responsible for Sanctuary Cove, Hope Island Resort and Royal Pines – all of which were built on flood plains.
