Toondah Harbour developers the Walker Group have started an exciting campaign about the forthcoming Toondah Harbour project. Check out the page in this edition and see how the project will play a vital role in the connection to the strategically important islands of Moreton Bay. Not only that, the 3.5 hectare waterside precinct will become a wonderful waterside family zone that will include a South Bank-style lagoon pool and water play area. In other words, it will be a tourism beacon for the Redlands that will also feature natural walking paths, picnic spots and green open spaces. A bonus will be other recreational amenities including a wetland education and cultural centre and low impact walking trails. A marina plaza with boutique retail and dining precinct will complement an exciting leisure and events destination attracting tourism to the region.


The survey by Redland City Council to gauge the success or otherwise of the Bay Islands Car Share project finishes in a few days. It is available on the Council website. During the process, the FBI decided to ‘join up’ and see how the system works. We found it extremely efficient, professional and very handy. It makes a lot of sense if you don’t do a lot of mainland travelling. We noticed a huge growth in the service and it has the capacity to make inroads on parking demands at Weinam Creek. We give it a big tick!


If you would like to see the Weinam Creek redevelopment before it is actually built, then you have to check out the new VIDEO FLY that is now available. See the full page in this edition on page 5 to find out more. A special video has been developed that will show you the concept, and it is definitely exciting. The transformation of a big, bland parking space is going to be thrilling, with the major car parking station designed in an extremely clever and architectural way. What is most exciting is the amount of green space, trees and walking areas. Check it out and what you need to do on page 5.
