A Chinese consortium have proposed a water theme park, international hotel, boutique residences, indoor go-karting track, spa resort, hot springs centre, and prestige golf academy at the Moonah Links golf course on Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula.

The estimated cost could be as high as $600 million.

The owners — a consortium of Chinese and Chinese-Australian business people — have presented their plans to the Minister for Tourism and Major events, John Eren.

A six minute Chinese video clip describing the plans for the site is now online including a stingray-shaped hot springs centre as part of the plan.

The marketing video from Peninsula International Group describes Melbourne and the peninsula as dream destinations.

The championship golf venue Moonah Links, which boasts two courses and Peppers hotel, was sold last year to the consortium for about $18 million.
