Hall & Willcox assists Peninsula Hot Springs in launch of new resort

Hall & Wilcox has provided legal advice to Peninsula Hot Springs on launching a new resort in partnership with Paroo Shire Council located in Cunnamulla, a rural town 800 kilometres west of Brisbane, Western Queensland.

The resort, known as Cunnamulla Hot Springs, aims to establish the town as the leading destination for hot springs in Australia, complementing existing attractions such as the Eulo Mud Baths, Charlotte Plains, Yowah Artesian Baths, and the artesian waters at Alroy Station.

It includes six geothermal pools with varying temperatures, an ice-cold plunge pool, a sauna, a steam room, an underground aqua hammam, and a mud club clay area. According to a news release, these facilities utilise the mineral-rich waters from the Great Artesian Basin.

The legal team from Hall & Wilcox was led by partner Brad Marland, along with senior associate Natalie Pecenicic, lawyer Jordan Petrie, and law graduate Jordan Beveridge. They managed the legal intricacies related to trustee agreements for lease, and trustee leases with Paroo Shire Council, facilitating a smooth operation for the new resort.

Marland commented on the project’s completion and said the opening of Cunnamulla Hot Springs resulted from “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,” he said.

Peninsula Hot Springs Group co-founder and chair Charles Davidson also expressed gratitude towards the legal team.

“At the start of any great venture is the groundwork that sets the foundations for the future,” said Davidson. “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.”
