The Sunshine Plaza in Maroochydore is soon to become the largest retail area north of Brisbane. A $400 million redevelopment is underway that will see the Plaza grow from its current 73,000 square metres to 107,000 square metres and will incorporate a range of new stores, dining experiences and a high ropes course.

The redevelopment will be conducted over stages with the first stage including an upgrade to the existing Myer store, the introduction of 40 new specialty stores, a range of upgrades to the existing Plaza infrastructure and a new entrance at Amaroo Street. The first stage should be finished by Christmas 2018.  In fact, the new entrance at Amaroo was recently opened which has created a new community space, to celebrate the opening a photographic exhibition was launched that focused on the genetic conditions of both adults and children on the 18th chromosome. The beautiful images were captured throughout the Sunshine Coast and are now on display.

Upgrades to the plaza include a “Town Square” meeting area and Riverwalk precinct, an interactive water play area, improvements to the current Food Court and a nautical play zone aimed at younger children. Opposite the play area will be two new food outlets featured on the bridge link on ground level.

The Final Retail Stage which will hopefully be completed by Easter 2019, subject to approval will involve the Sunshine Coast’s first David Jones, a Big W, 60 new specialty stores and new alfresco dining along Cornmeal Promenade, as well as the Plaza’s new High Ropes Course.
