Why Invest in Pelican Waters – Sunshine Coast
Pelican Waters is situated in the heart of Caloundra and offers an amazing array of unrivaled coastal lifestyle choices.
‘The Southern Lakes’ Pelican Waters is a vibrant urban community. Distinctly local in both appearance and function, the mixed use, waterfront neighborhood includes the new Town Heart, a focus on community activities, services and facilities which embrace the coastal lifestyle and sub-tropical climate of the area.
The master-planned community of Pelican Waters provides a range of benefits including private and public schools, shopping, dining, sports and recreation all of which make Pelican Waters such a special place to live. Other benefits include the Greg Norman designed golf course, wide canal waterways leading throughout the estate and into one of Australia’s premier marine parks. With the best still to come.
Pelican Waters has long been regarded as the Sunshine Coast waterfront lifestyle of choice. With it’s proximity to the open waters of Pumicestone Passage and the Caloundra CBD, Pelican Waters is fortunate in being one of the most strategically located master-planned communities on the Sunshine Coast.
Future stages are planned for over the next 10 to 15 years which include a Town Centre consisting of a mix of office, retail and restaurant uses further enhancing the benefits of an already successful masterplanned estate benefiting the already vibrant heart of the community.
As the great land shortage continues to gain momentum across the Sunshine Coast, waterfront land is rapidly in decline across South-East Queensland. The benefit to you buying into Pelican Waters will be the resultant capital growth and increased demand for rental properties.
Currently just one hour north of Brisbane and the International Airport and just 30 minutes to the Sunshine Coast Airport, the community is minutes from some of the world’s best beaches. Craggy Headlands, offshore reefs, pounding surf, secluded bays and protected waterways provide a never-ending variety of playgrounds for water lovers. Head for the hills and the Sunshine Coast hinterland features its own treasures – rainforest walks, the unique Glasshouse Mountains, rolling hills, mountain hideaways, scenic dams and breathtaking vistas.
A new interchange has been built on The Bruce Hwy at Bells Creek Rd that will connect up with the roundabout at Nicolin Way and Caloundra Rd. There will be a new road that branches off this that will give access into the northern end of Pelican Waters. This new road infrastructure is estimated to reduce travel times back to Brisbane by 15mins, meaning it will only be 45mins away.

A 20-year project, the Pelican Waters residential community has sold more than 1,900 home sites, since first released to the market in 1989. With the establishment of the Greg Norman designed Pelican Waters Golf Course and waterfront home sites with direct ocean access, the Estate has attracted Australia-wide and international purchasers.
People are moving to Pelican Waters not only for lifestyle, but also as a business change and as the Sunshine Coast continues to grow economically, having direct access to Kawana and Maroochydore areas via Pelican Waters Boulevard is particularly enticing.

The new Southern Lakes Development will provide a place to live, work and play. Not only will it create opportunities for both waterfront and main street businesses, it will also be a centre of convenience with plenty of car parking, a medical centre, child care centre, banks and maybe a post office. We want to create atmosphere and a reason for people to visit Pelican Waters
The town centre will be located north east facing over a marina catering for boats up to 12m long with many wet berths available. Additionally there will be a commercial marina precinct consisting of a dry stack boat facility and, pending further approvals refueling and pump out facilities. The boat stacker will mean a convenient way for someone living in a unit to own a boat. All they will have to do is make a phone call and the boat will be fueled and in the water ready to go. Boats will have a refueling and pump out point which will be far safer and more environmentally sustainable than what is available now.
