Hall & Wilcox advises Peninsula Hot Springs on new multi-million-dollar resort in Western Queensland


Hall & Wilcox advised Peninsula Hot Springs on its new multi-million-dollar resort with Paroo Shire Council in the rural town of Cunnamulla, 800 kilometres west of Brisbane.

Cunnamulla Hot Springs marks the largest development in Paroo Shire Council history. The town is set to become Australia's hot spring capital, with the new resort merging its natural springs with renowned attractions like the Eulo Mud Baths, Charlotte Plains, Yowah Artesian Baths and the artesian waters of Alroy Station.

Designed by Cox Architects, Cunnamulla Hot Springs will transform the region's tourism scene with its blend of luxury, wellness and sustainability. With sweeping views over the Warrego River, it boasts six geothermal hot and warm pools, an ice-cold plunge pool, a sauna, steam room, an underground aqua hammam and a mud club clay area. All the pools utilise mineral-rich artesian waters, naturally warmed by the earth's underground Great Artesian basin.

The Hall & Wilcox team, led by Partner Brad Marland, alongside senior associate Natalie Pecenicic, lawyer Jordan Petrie and law graduate Jordan Beveridge, navigated the complexities of trustee agreements for lease and trustee leases with the Paroo Shire Council. These agreements have paved the way for Peninsula Hot Springs to seamlessly operate their new venture.

Partner Brad Marland reflected on the achievement, sharing, ‘The successful opening of Cunnamulla Hot Springs is a testament to the years of collaboration between Peninsula Hot Springs and the Paroo Shire Council. It’s been an exciting journey to contribute to a project that not only aligns with our shared commitment to sustainability and community engagement but also plays a pivotal role in shaping a dynamic future for Western Queensland.’

Charles Davidson, Peninsula Hot Springs Group Co-Founder and Chair, said, ‘At the start of any great venture is the groundwork that sets the foundations for the future. Done well, the contractual process leads to alignment, shared understanding and a document that hopefully can sit on the shelf gathering dust. Thank you, Hall & Willcox, for the thorough and professional approach, which helped us commence this catalyst project in the heart of the Queensland Outback.’
