BRIBIE Island could expect a boost in jobs and tourism if plans to build a luxury caravan park on Bribie Island Rd go ahead.
Sandstone Point Family Holiday Resort is the proposed name for the project which is expected to be approved by the Moreton Bay Regional Council early next year.
Comiskey Group is the master behind the $50 million project which will include five star camping facilities, a $1 million water park, tennis courts and cabins. Adjoining the park will be a hotel, motel, museum and function centre.
Comiskey Group director Robert Comiskey said the project would create between 150-200 local jobs and the company was looking to get the park registered as part of the Big4 Holiday Parks chain.
"Big4 is very family orientated. These types of caravan parks are the new style," Mr Comiskey said.
"The facilities are second to none. It's like going to a real resort."
Sandstone Point Community Association secretary Margaret Kelly said the new project was exciting for Bribie.
"It will benefit the tourist community. There is nothing on Bribie that resembles this," she said.
"I have stayed in caravan parks like this and it's a great place for children. I don't think the kids would ever want to leave.
"Bribie is concentrated on the seniors and the young, but it's this sort of a thing that gets that in between group and teenagers."
The resort will have 150 cabins, powered, ensuite and tent sites;
- A pool
- Cafe and lounge
- Jumping pillow
- Water park
- Tennis court
- Barbecue and camp kitchen
