Pinjarra Murray Times - - FRONT PAGE - Jill Burgess and David Johns

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.
