Multidimensional potential, to create integrated sustainability.

The sustainable approach starts with a look back in time.

Since the 1970’s South Stradbroke has suffered from a lack of strategic public and private planning, coupled with sub-optimal offerings and operators.

Always missing the key components required to counter the operational challenges of sustainable Island operations. 

In order to change the status quo and the operational paradigm, a collaborative long term approach is required by all stakeholders.

REJUVENATION

To ensure the safety and security of the current sites, which have been left in a poor state, the interim clean up task is considerable involving:

  • Resolve and address all non-compliant legacy structures to comply with planning rules and correct boundaries
  • Remove all dumped materials and legacy structure issues
  • Regeneration of the majority of lot 58 (McLaren’s Landing) to its natural habitat status
  • Removal of all existing structures on lot 36 (former wedding and function venue)
  • Development of a nature-based experiential events and function capability
  • Introduction of renewable technologies in waste and water treatment and power generation
  • Regeneration of national park areas where dumped materials have been placed
  • Enacting a concept and plan designed to profile and protect the island’s greatest attributes of ecology and cultural heritage


Pandana has adopted a minimal ground disturbance strategy as well as a 100% native tree avoidance plan in development. This means that it will preserve and protect the existing native trees on site, invest in regenerating the natural flora whilst always ensuring public safety and compliance.
