Plans for a new resort-style water park in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburb of Dingley Village have been unveiled.

Upon completion, the $100 million project will be the largest indoor water park in the southern hemisphere.

The project is a venture between diversified property group Pellicano and hospitality group Zagame along with Canadian-based leading water park professionals WhiteWater West and local architectural practice Peddle Thorp.

To be known as Zagame’s Wild Water Park, the facility will provide 18,200 square metres of indoor and 20,000 square metres of outdoor water attractions.

The park will include a 180-degree semi-circular stand-up surf pool, a tunnel-like wave ski-slide complete with video controls and an indoor-outdoor ‘lazy river’.

The park will utilise an eWater system, solar power technology, systems for the collection and reuse of rainwater, extensive plantation of indigenous wetland vegetation and a concentration on composting, recycling and biodegradable processes.

Pellicano managing director Nando Pellicano said it will provide visitors and the wider community with both fun and education. 

Pellicano has owned this site for over 30 years and is thrilled to reveal our plans to inject much-needed, year-round, all-weather fun into Melbourne’s family entertainment landscape,” he said.

“At Pellicano we consistently aim to deliver high-quality, dynamic projects and we  have made every effort to incorporate this ideology of excellence in the planning stages of this project.” 

Pellicano and Zagame previously collaborated on the regeneration of Paradise Resort on the Gold Coast.

Zagame Corporation’s director Robert Zagame says partnering with Pellicano for this project was an exciting opportunity for the company.

“This partnership was a natural fit for Zagame’s; as a well-established family-owned business, Pellicano’s values align closely with our own and we both continue to maintain a benchmark of excellence in all our business dealings,” Zagame said.

“With both companies established in Victoria, we embrace any opportunity to position our home state as the place to be, and we’re excited to witness the economic benefits a major tourism project such as this will deliver to our home.” 

“Upon completion we will not only be opening our doors to leisure and fun seekers but to primary, secondary and tertiary students who will benefit from behind-the-scenes exposure to the best-practice engineering and technology which will be on display.” 

WhiteWater West’ s President and CEO, Geoff Chutter, said it was thrilled to be part of the project.

“We’re proud that our local branch, WhiteWater West Australia will be partnering with Australian companies to build this ground-breaking water park that features some of our most iconic rides and will provide huge entertainment value for families,” Chutter said.
