Parkwood Village on the Gold Coast has secured Development Approval, paving the way for its evolution into a world-class integrated golf and surf village. This visionary mixed-use project, anchored by the Gold Coast’s inaugural surf park, the ‘Endless Surf Wave Lagoon,’ is poised to redefine leisure and entertainment on the Gold Coast.
The development approval announcement marks a thrilling moment for the surfing community, promising to introduce a novel innovation to the Gold Coast’s entertainment and lifestyle panorama. Under the leadership of Managing Director Luke Altschwager, Parkwood Village aims to fuse the best elements of global surf culture, golf, and entertainment to create the ultimate integrated resort experience. The project will feature an enhanced 18-hole golf course, alongside residential, hotel, retail, and dining facilities, establishing a dynamic and cohesive community space.
“The proposed Surf HQ and Endless Surf Wave Pool, Childcare, Retail, food and beverage, commercial and medical tenancies will dovetail into the existing uses at Parkwood Village to become a readily walkable precinct,” he stated.
He emphasized that surfing embodies the true essence of Australia, and upon its completion, coupled with the enhanced golf course and Gold Coast Titans Rugby League training facilities, Parkwood is envisioned to become the beating heart of sports on the Gold Coast.
“A world-class surf break is a perfect fit for our active community, coupled with a multi-million dollar make-over to the 18-hole golf course and a beautiful family resort,” Luke said. “It will be like nothing before seen on the Gold Coast.”
Anticipating a targeted finish in late 2026, Mr. Altschwager acknowledged that the journey ahead is poised to be a busy and dynamic endeavour.
“We are thrilled to have received DA and will immediately begin planning for construction. These things take time though, so we ask the community to be patient with us as we move through the construction process,” he said.
President of Endless Surf, Paul Chutter said the project is truly a world-class venue in the making.
“We at Endless Surf are honoured to be the anchor of this vibrant lifestyle hub that will quickly become a staple destination within the region. As one of our first signed contracts from when we launched Endless Surf three years ago, this project is a special one, and we are beyond thrilled to receive this approval,” said Paul.
Designed with both world-class surfing and operational efficiency in mind, the surf park technology at Parkwood Village offers unparalleled wave customization and industry-leading flexibility. Yesterday’s development approval announcement means Endless Surf at Parkwood Village is positioned to bring a new chapter to the Gold Coast surfing community, to cater to surfers of all skill levels, creating an inclusive experience for newcomers and seasoned Gold Coast surfers alike.
