AURA, (formerly Caloundra South) City of Colour, a massive development now well under way at the Southern end of the Sunshine Coast. Now in its third year of its proposed 35 year duration. A brand new city the size of Gladstone with over 20,000 brand new homes to be built to accommodate the 50,000 new residents who intend to call Aura and the Sunshine Coast ‘home’.
Aura, being developed by Stockland, Australia’s largest land developer is designated to become a ‘city of the future’ with infrastructure to benefit each and every member of its community Over 700 hectares has been allocated to conservation areas and parks, a network of cycle ways stretching for over 200 kilometres will provide safe passage for young and old alike, and of course for those in between. More than 20 new educational facilities including a university are proposed within its boundaries.
Aura Central as the city centre will be known, will span over 90 hectares once complete, will include a huge open-air shopping centre, numerous restaurants, taverns, medical facilities and transit centre. The main feature of Aura Central will be the future ‘Peoples Place’, an 11 hectare Southbank (Brisbane) style parkland framed by cafes, a swimming lagoon, playgrounds, picnic areas, community facilities, adjacent university and large spaces for festivals and markets, the ‘Peoples Place’ will be a major drawcard for students, local residents, and visitors alike.
Baringa, the first suburb of Aura with over 1,500 home sites is nearing completion, its State Primary School opened in January this year (2018), it will specialise in developing the young ones understandings of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) as they excitingly begin life’s journey. Baringa is the very first of an interconnected network of villages that will form Aura, Australia’s largest master-planned community.
Designated cycle paths and numerous wide footpaths are already in place providing early residents with a myriad of locations to explore and many more as this exciting city of the future evolves.
