Throw Up Your Shakas, Melbourne’s Getting A New Surf Park In The South-East

The humble south-eastern suburb of Dingley Village will soon be home to a state-of-the-art wave park, pending council lodgment. 

The park, known as SurfnPlay Aqua Park, will be the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere, pumping out up to six waves per minute and as high as six feet with sectioned areas for beginners to your everyday Mick Fanning. 

Along with the wave park as a major drawcard, SurfnPlay intends to appease big kids and little ones alike with several water jet-powered slides, water tunnels, a lazy river and even an aquarium.

After its initial lodgement for the mammoth project back in 2019, the Pellicano Group has addressed several items raised by key parties involved. What’s resulted is 25% more landscaping in its design and double the amount of solar panels planned to power SurfnPlay Aqua Park. 

The technology being used to create waves at such size and frequency comes from WhiteWater West, who is currently building a similar park in France. Once completed, Dingley Village’s waterpark will be the only other place you’ll be able to find these manmade waves.
