Truly a magic place to live

Sold On Sunshine Coast - - Suburb Profile | Pelican Waters -

EVOLV­ING into one of the Sun­shine Coast’s most de­sir­able des­ti­na­tions to live, work and play, Pel­i­can Wa­ters is known for beau­ti­ful wa­ter­front views, gor­geous hous­ing and is claimed to be the Sun­shine Coast life­style of choice.

Pur­chased in 1946 by Roy Hen­zell, the 810ha of land stretches from Golden Beach to Pu­mice­s­tone Pas­sage.

Chang­ing hands for 2000 Bri­tish pound, Roy Hen­zell saw his grand­fa­ther’s vi­sion and made Pel­i­can Wa­ters a re­al­ity and what it is to­day.

The first land re­lease in 1989 saw de­vel­op­ment un­der way and the land soon be­came sought-af­ter real es­tate. More than 2000 home-sites sur­rounded by man-made canals emerged into an en­vi­able res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity.

En­com­pass­ing 810ha of a wa­ter-based liv­ing, Pel­i­can Wa­ters of­fers a mix of res­i­den­tial land, fea­tur­ing both wa­ter­front and dry home sites.

With larger style blocks, all with un­der­ground ser­vices, and the added bonus of no traf­fic lights thereby al­le­vi­at­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion, this com­mu­nity is the ideal lo­ca­tion in which to raise a fam­ily or to re­tire in style.

With gen­er­ous open spa­ces, the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment sets Pel­i­can Wa­ters apart from all other res­i­den­tial es­tates.

Built with lo­ca­tion in mind, the Pel­i­can Wa­ters Town Cen­tre and Ma­rina is right in the heart of the es­tate. Of­fer­ing Coles, Wool­worths, restau­rants, cafes, med­i­cal cen­tre, child­care fa­cil­i­ties and plenty of park­ing, it re­ally does of­fer ev­ery­thing, ex­cept the crowds.

Home to Greg Nor­man’s first world-class res­i­den­tial golf course, Pel­i­can Wa­ters Golf Club is the per­fect lo­ca­tion for golf en­thu­si­asts.

Com­pris­ing 6289m of golf course, sur­rounded by ex­ist­ing land­scape, it de­liv­ers a chal­leng­ing golf­ing ter­rain, im­pres­sive driv­ing range, prac­tice putting and a golf shop.

The ques­tion on ev­ery­one’s mind is, how many games of golf have you played this week?

Ranked as the num­ber one golf course on the Sun­shine Coast, the club­house also of­fers func­tions, golf days and a per­fect venue for wed­dings.

With unique pho­tog­ra­phy op­por­tu­ni­ties and 53ha of out­stand­ing back­ground and ro­man­tic lakes, this venue would be the per­fect place to say I do.

With an abun­dance of flora and fauna, there is a doc­u­mented 35 dif­fer­ent species that have nes­tled in Pel­i­can Wa­ters.

The main fo­cus is to keep the na­tive plants in or­der to re­tain the beauty of this sub­urb and to en­cour­age the wildlife to flour­ish in the area.

With an ar­ray of coastal life­style choices, and houses that are fit for a king, Pel­i­can Wa­ters re­ally is, a magic place to live.
