Sydney’s The Wisemans Ferry Retreat and Golf Club has a proposal for a new wave park

POSTED ON January 29, 2020 @ 5:07 pm

An exclusive inland wave park has been proposed for an unusual location on the outskirts of north west Sydney.

The Wisemans Ferry Retreat and Golf Club on the Hawkesbury River submitted an application to the Hills Shire Council on January 23 to construct a 13,735 square metre wave pool complete with a beach and lounge area on their existing site.

The pool will use more than 30,000 cubic metres of water filtered from the Hawkesbury while utilising wave-generating technology from American company Surf Loch Wave Systems.

But not everyone will be able to enjoy the attraction, because the wave park will be exclusive to retreat guests.

‘The Retreat will become a Golf and Wave Hotel that will make a valuable contribution to the local economy, without altering or impacting upon the existing ambience, visitation potential, or aesthetic qualities of the site or Wisemans Ferry Village.’

The $30million facility features a baseball field-shaped pool the size of the MCG, and utilises Wavegarden technology to produce perfect surfing conditions in a safe and controlled environment.

The wave park was forced to close for three days last week after mud rain from a passing dust storm contaminated the pool, but has since reopened for customers.

Documents obtained by Daily Mail Australia state that Surf Loch Wave Systems are dedicated to maintaining water quality to meet and exceed the NSW Public Health Act 2010.

Surf Loch Wave Systems have yet to open a full-size wave park featuring their wave-generating technology utilising water from a river.
