Have Your Say on the Broadwater Marine Project!

The Broadwater Marine Project is a joint initiative of the Queensland Government and Gold Coast City Council and seeks private sector investment to deliver what could be the largest integrated tourism development in Queensland’s history.

The world-class project seeks delivery of a cruise ship terminal on State Government-owned land on The Spit or on Wave Break Island in the Broadwater.

In addition to the terminal, the potential multi-billion dollar integrated tourism project could include hotel, casino, marina and super yacht facilities, retail, entertainment, hospitality, community open space, recreation facilities and a mix of residential (types and tenure).

A Gold Coast cruise ship terminal and associated tourism infrastructure have the potential to boost tourist visitation, increasing expenditure into the state and local economies and creating jobs.

Currently expressions of interest are being sought from the market. The Broadwater Marine Project presents an opportunity for the market to submit proposals to deliver an integrated tourism project on state-owned land and adjoining waters at the southern Broadwater. While the expressions of interest are being sought, Council is also encouraging community members to have their say.
