The implementation strategies included within the master plan are not currently programmed by any entity. Responsibility for the implementation strategies will be determined subsequent to formal adoption of the master plan.

The draft master plan is one of the 23 Queensland Government initiatives under the Minjerribah Futures program (formerly the North Stradbroke Island Economic Transition Strategy), which aims to diversify and expand the island's economy.

The master plan aims to:

  • identify areas for future residential, commercial, community, environmental and industrial land uses
  • explore ways to better tell the Quandamooka story to visitors
  • identify necessary upgrades to infrastructure and services to improve liveability
  • acknowledge and respect cultural, social and environmental values
  • enhance the town’s role and appeal as a tourism-friendly destination and gateway to Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island).

The Master Plan

We are now seeking your feedback on the master plan — including your thoughts on the vision, overarching strategies and the catalyst projects identified.

Gumpi (Dunwich) Draft Master Plan

Vision

The vision for the Gumpi Master Plan is:

Gumpi (Dunwich) consolidates its role as the gateway to the environmental and cultural sanctuary of North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah). Sustainable foundations support a strong local economy with opportunities.

Strategies

Community feedback and technical analysis has identified a range of priorities for Gumpi and guided the development of four overarching strategies designed to guide projects and achieve the master plan’s objectives.

  1. A memorable and authentic place
  2. A thriving and sustainable place
  3. A green and natural sanctuary
  4. A connected and legible place

Catalyst projects

To realise the vision and objectives set out in the master plan, the following six catalyst projects have been selected because of their ability to best achieve the desired social, economic, and cultural prosperity for Gumpi. These projects will, over time, dramatically reposition the township of Gumpi (Dunwich) and steer it towards achieving the vision of the master plan.

  1. Upgrades to ferry transport infrastructure
  2. Land use and economic revitalisation
  3. Township wayfinding and navigation
  4. Foreshore strategy and upgrades
  5. Day trip experience
