Eco-Resort For Great Keppel Island Given Green Light

By David Bell

The proposed Great Keppel Island resort development has been given the green light, which may be of interest to those considering investing in real estate in Rockhampton.

The island – just off the coast from Rockhampton – will see a $600 million holiday resort built, which will see jobs created and holidaymakers flock to the region.

Minister for state development, infrastructure and planning Jeff Seeney lauded the announcement, saying that the eco project will benefit the area to no end.

He explained: "It would provide a huge boost to both the construction and tourism industries – two of Queensland's four key economic pillars – creating hundreds of construction jobs over a 12-year construction period and more than a 1,000 permanent operational jobs."

In what will be a major attraction for the region, there will be 750 resort villas – all of which will boast eco-friendly attributes such as solar panels and water tanks.

There will be a golf course designed by world famous golfer Greg Norman – no doubt attracting enthusiasts from all over the country.

One of the main objectives of this development is to achieve a resort that is very environmentally conscious, and even "carbon positive".
