The overall vision for the project brings a significant investment to the local region as a whole and will continue to attract visitors and new residents.View More
Construction of The Oaks Ranch Estate will support 320 direct, and 500 indirect local jobs during construction. A further 40 direct and 32 indirect local jobs will be created for the ongoing operation of the resort and facilities. We will support local training and apprenticeship in areas of Hotel Management, Hospitality, and Green Keeping. By combining conference facilities into the Oaks Ranch Resort, we will attract higher-spending business and community visitors to the area. Our Greg Norman designed golf course will also be a significant drawcard for new high-income visitors. Oaks Ranch will be like no other resort on the south coast, attracting new visitors that would not have otherwise come to the area.
As part of the master-planned development at The Oaks Ranch Estate we will be retaining, managing and rehabilitating more than 90% of established bushland and rehabilitate some of the degraded pasture areas to support the local ecology and environment.
There will be numerous opportunities for new employment seekers to access apprenticeships and traineeships in the many hospitality business areas.
As with all tourism destinations, having a world-class designed golf course will attract many visitors as well as provide many job opportunities.
The conference market is especially important as there are no similar facilities meeting this demand in the area.
