Proposed new Melbourne water park would be southern hemisphere’s largest
POSTED 15 Mar 2019 . BY Andy Knaggs
A new AU$100m (US$70.87m, €62.6m, £53.39m) indoor waterpark in Melbourne, Australia, will be the largest such park in the southern hemisphere upon completion, according to the partners behind the project.

Zagame’s Wild Water Park will be situated in the south-eastern suburb of Dingley Village. Comprising 18,200sq m (59,700sq ft) of indoor and 20,000sq m (65,616sq ft) of outdoor water attractions, the resort is a venture between hospitality group Zagame, property group Pellicano (which owns the land), supplier WhiteWater West, and local architectural practice Peddle Thorp. An application to build the park was submitted in early March 2019.

A number of advanced technologies will be utilised at the park, including an eWater system, solar power, and systems for the collection and reuse of rainwater. The intention is to expose these technologies to students, fulfilling an educational role as well as a leisure one for the attraction.

According to a report in The Herald Sun, the waterpark will take two years to construct, once approved. It will create more than 1,100 full-time jobs in the region, with 600 at the park itself. Among the rides planned for Zagame’s Wild Water Park are a 180-degree semi-circular stand-up surf pool, a tunnel-like wave ski-slide with video controls, and an indoor-outdoor lazy river.

"It will set a new bar for waterparks in Australia and the southern hemisphere," said James Corbett of WhiteWater West. "There will be lots of firsts, but we don’t want to give away too much.”
