It was in the Advertiser a while ago that Peter Butterfly(a developer who developed some of the gold coast and other places around the world) has proposed to build a Resort hotel, theme park, golf corse(with fees of up to 5k a year) and 1250 housing blocks at port hughs. "The beach reminds me of Gold Coast before all the skyrises were built"

"RESORT HOTEL... THEME PARK ...GOLF COURSE"


"$200 million development at Port Hughes"


-1250 housing allotments


an international resort hotel


a theme park


and


international golf course


is planned for Port Hughes" thats what was in a local news paper.
But i dont think it has gone through coz it was in the advertiser a lot but then it just disapeared. and all the NIMBY's complained because it would ruin the sand dunes.

I dont really want it in port hughs but it would be awsome like some where els in SA. The beach is too beautiful there. And it does look like the Gold Coast beachs.
It would be interesting if someone could help me find more about it.

I dont understand people complaining all the time about bloody sand.
If development is done properly, with high consideration for the surrounding environment, there is absolutely no reason why it should or would ruin sand dunes or anything else. Other then some rich, stuck up snobs view of the water.

The size doesnt matter, but what the dunes are home to does.

Any more info on that proposed theme park?
Would it be a gold coast style park?
Because you know, technically places like magic mountain, are(or were) theme parks.

I hope sooooooo much, that this will happen. But probably it will. 99.9%
This will superboost South Australia's tourism.
And a theme park will be great.

About dunes:
"Subject to agreement with authorities, the concept also includes pedestrian connections to the beach via fully developed coastal boardwalks to protect the sand dunes, vegetation and heritage features.
It will happen!!!! :banana: Can't wait!

BTW: When will it be officially confirmed (if)?

When will it be confirmed?
When the necessary land is acquired, and approval is granted by the relevant authorities.

Dont get your hopes up yet.

If anyone knows the slightest thing about SA, they'd know theres only a slim chance of this going through.

Anyway, I can't see it happening but i hope it does.

No, I don't know. Explain it to me.

SA Is full of small-thinkers and nimbys. That explains why Adelaide has remained a Country town even after surpassing 1 million people. Read Amanda Blairs article in the sunday mail 2 weeks ago for an accurate and detailed outlook on the City of Adelaide.

This is a pretty impressive brief current developments list for a country town, wouldn't you say?
