The TreeTop Challenge’s Big Pineapple facility is the newest eco-tourism high-ropes adventure attraction on the Sunshine Coast, involving ziplines and 100 challenges reaching heights of over 25m. The facility forms one of the first attractions to open as part of the Big Pineapple redevelopment that is currently being assessed by Council.

Place Design Group was engaged to facilitate the development approval for the eco-tourism attraction, involving a Code assessable development application to Council and referral to the State. A minor change application was also lodged to relocate office space within the site.

Effectively managing the development application through to a favourable approval outcome, Place Design Group negotiated complex ecological constraints, including the avoidance of requiring a s22a relevant purpose approval from the State, to ensure a smooth approval process and streamline building certification process ahead of the client’s opening event on 23rd March 2019.
