Wave park for Pinjarra
A WAVE park, hot springs, a brewery and accommodation are part of a major tourist attraction that has been given in-principle support by the Shire of Murray.
The proposed development, called Mandurah Waters, will be built on a 170ha site in West Pinjarra – west of Forrest Highway and midway between Greenlands and Beacham roads – which is currently used for grazing.
On-site accommodation options would include a caravan, park home and chalet park, as well as seasonal workers’ accommodation. A produce and market stall, events space and hot springs with an indoor pool and treatment room are also on the cards.
Murray councillors provided in-principle support to the proposal from Palmer Group, subject to all necessary statutory approvals being obtained and relevant technical matters being addressed.
According to the application submitted to the council, a Green and Beach area will be used for a range of events such as a farmer’s produce market, polo and equestrian events, concerts, beach volleyball competitions and other family events.
Spokesman Steve Palmer said Mandurah Waters was an “exciting” development for the local area.
“It’s all about jobs and tourism and creating exciting recreational facilities for locals to enjoy,” he said.
More details on the proposal are expected to be revealed in the coming months.
