This project is supported by $1.8 million from the Attracting Tourism Fund, aimed at new tourism attractions, experiences and aviation services to generate increased economic activity, jobs and overnight visitors.
The new elements of this project will complement the existing Hazelwood Estate, which is a 30 hectare working polo and wagyu cattle farm in Upper Beechmont, on the edge of the World Heritage listed Lamington National Park.
The new accommodation, including eco-friendly luxury farm cottages and cabins, will enable up to 40 guests to stay in addition to the existing Homestead and Guest House accommodation which can sleep 12 guests.
The estate also plans to offer farm gate nature, wildlife and workshop experiences from a purpose-built Tack Room and promote awareness of regional Queensland agricultural industries by partnering with Queensland farmers to deliver its authentic on-farm paddock-to-plate offering through its Wagyu Cellar Door.
Set to be completed in late-2021, the project is expected to bring more than 18,000 additional visitors to the area annually by 2025 and drive nearly $4.5 million into the economy.
