Oceanside Kawana is the new name for the central Kawana region that is planned to transform into an estimated $5 billion world-class destination for the Sunshine Coast.
The new regional identity will encompass around 100 hectares of land in the heart of the coast, taking in Birtinya, Bokarina Beach and the future Town Centre and Commercial precinct.
At the heart of Oceanside Kawana will be the multi-billion dollar Health Hub and Kawana Health Campus – a vibrant 24/7 precinct that will become one of the most vital health and medical research districts anywhere in Australia.
The vision for Oceanside Kawana is to create a whole new way of living for the coast, where homes, shopping, entertainment, business, health services, tourism and jobs all co-exist in a single location that also happens to be a postcard sun, sand and surf setting.
Its creation will feature one of the largest infrastructure projects ever undertaken on the coast with new roads, bridges, parks and services on a massive scale. The total economic benefit during the development of Oceanside is forecast to top $5.3 billion over the next 15 years and generate more than 3000 jobs per annum during the development phase*.
On completion, the new heart of the Sunshine Coast is expected to create approximately 12,000 ongoing jobs and contribute $828 million annually to the local and state economy.
The Sunshine Coast is arguably one of the most exciting and innovative
business destinations within Australia. Located just 1 hour north
of Australia’s 3rd largest city, Brisbane, it is home to a growing
population of well over 300,000 and the focus for major infra-
structure and development projects within Kawana, Maroochydore
and the Caloundra South centres.
Oceanside Kawana is centrally located within this network of activity centres and will be designed to be a major source of highly skilled talent as well as a key destination for investment. View Oceanside Kawana website
