A sculptural building rising from the wilderness captures spectacular views of Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay – and fills a significant gap in the Mornington Peninsula’s tourism infrastructure.

Tract’s Planning team prepared the comprehensive RACV Cape Schanck Development Plan, which was approved by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council in November 2015.

The $135 million redevelopment integrates the existing golf, accommodation and resort facilities within a new centrally located building boasting a 120-bedroom 4.5-star hotel, a day spa and conferencing facilities that cater for up to 650 delegates.

As part of the approvals process, we coordinated high- level strategic engagement and, community consultation events. Our Media team provided accurate 3D photographic montages that proved integral to the process, reliably conveying the impacts of the built- form within the site’s sensitive coastal setting.

The redevelopment fills a gap in the region’s tourism infrastructure. Larger scale conferencing facilities attract national and international events that couldn’t previously be accommodated on the Peninsula, and the resort as a whole delivers ongoing benefits from an economic, environmental and social perspective for Mornington Peninsula locals and Victorians more broadly.
