Non-aeronautical Development

Gold Coast Airport hotel

In 2018 the Federal Government approved Gold Coast Airport’s Major Development Plan (MDP) for a $50 million Rydges-branded hotel at the airport precinct.

When complete, the hotel will be seven-stories high, with views over Kirra Beach and across the runway, and will include a rooftop bar and viewing deck, with 192 rooms and suites.

The hotel will be developed by Trepang and work on construction commenced in 2019.

Off-airport land development

Plans for the development of prime sites south of Gold Coast Airport are progressing – with a master plan underway for the former Border Park raceway and a development application approved for the Wollemi Place drive-in theatre. Both sites offer major job-generating potential for the northern NSW and the southern Gold Coast areas.
