$600m Development for Moonah Links

  • 2086.jpg

The Mornington Peninsula could become home to one of Victoria’s most expensive tourism developments if the grand plans of a Chinese consortium get the go-ahead. A water theme park, international hotel, boutique accommodation residences, indoor go-karting track, spa resort, hot springs centre and prestige golf academy are all on the cards for the bold development at Moonah Links golf course. The estimated cost of the project could be as high as $600 million.

The owners — a consortium of Chinese and Chinese-Australian business people — have already presented their plans to the Minister for Tourism. The marketing video from Peninsula International Group describes Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula as a dream destination.

Businessman Paddy Handbury sold the championship golf venue Moonah Links which boasts two courses and Peppers hotel to the consortium for about $18m last year.

The owners plans for the site include a boutique accommodation development, high-end hotel, restaurants as well as the water theme park and spa therapy and hot springs centre.

A spokesman for the consortium, Sasha Han, told Leader the owners had already engaged consultants to prepare environmental and cultural and heritage reports for the Mornington Peninsula Shire.

“We want to be able to create something that will benefit the peninsula, the community and Victoria as a whole. We are very serious about this development … and want to bring in tourists from abroad and interstate. We think the Mornington Peninsula is very, very popular and we want to promote it and attract as many visitors as possible.”
