Covering an expansive 25-hectare site in Glenview, the project known as '2562 Steve Irwin Way' is steadily morphing into a breathtaking lifestyle destination and tourist hotspot. The plan features two incredible lots: The first is set to house the fabulous Invigorate Family Resort, the adrenaline-charged ACTVENTURE Waterpark, and a buzzing retail and food and beverage precinct. The second lot promises to lure visitors with 51 beautiful lakeside apartments, a bigger ACTVENTURE Waterpark, and 23 luxurious surf-side apartments, all poised to overlook the impressive PerfectSwell Surf Pool.

Speaking of pools, get ready to ride the longest waves of your life at the PerfectSwell Surf Pool, a cutting-edge attraction developed in collaboration with American Wave Machines. This pool is designed to mimic a variety of waves, offering a truly realistic and controlled environment for all the surfers out there.

On top of all these, the Invigorate Resort, nestled next to the ACTVENTURE Waterpark, is set to be a 4-star facility packed with 160 self-contained eco villas for families. Visitors can look forward to a medley of exciting experiences from farm-to-table dining, wellness facilities, open-air cinema to an indoor gaming arcade and swimming pools.

Sanad Capital's Bradley Sutherland expressed his excitement for the project to the Sunshine Coast News, "These projects signify a major step forward in our commitment with Sunshine Coast Council and the State Government to delivering world-class developments that will enhance the region's appeal and provide unforgettable experiences for visitors and residents alike,".

What Else Can We Expect at Actventure?

Actventure Waterpark and Invigorate Resort will include self-contained family-friendly villas, around 25 rides, adrenalin experiences and a world-class surf wave pool. It will be the third-largest water park in the state behind rival attractions on the Gold Coast, Wet 'n' Wild and WhiteWater World.

The action zone will be fringed by cabanas and lazy chairs where families and friends can chill out and watch the fun. Actventure will also have a large 'relax pool' with a spa and swim-up bar.

And, hold onto your hats, it will be home to the largest water splash park in the WORLD!
