BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort Accommodation Upgrade
We have supported the diversification of BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort.
We have contributed $500,000 towards the construction of 12 additional studio villas at the BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort. The new villas offer the resort greater diversification with more accommodation options available for visitors to enjoy.
This project is a part of the $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure (GTI) Fund 2020/21 which is a key element of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.
Support 55 FTE construction jobs and 5 operational jobs.
Estimated to attract more than 7,500 additional visitors annually.
Estimated to grow the local economy by $1.1 million annually.
Thanks to the co-contribution of the Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund, we were fortunate enough to have been able to start our Studio Villa expansion project after what was a devastating time for us and the tourism industry as a whole. The funding has fast-tracked our recovery, allowing us to not only accommodate more visitors on-site but provide further job opportunities from construction through to full-time employment, increasing annual tourism numbers and injecting $1.1 million into the local economy. We cannot begin to thank the Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund for the co-contribution towards this project. This opportunity has not only allowed us to grow but prosper, bringing other planned projects that would have been delayed due to COVID-19 into the foreseeable future.
