South Beach is being developed in a partnership between the local Manera Family, who have helped build the Elliott Heads region for nearly 50 years and experienced Sydney-based developer Stan La Vin.
As the biggest local employer for many years, the Manera family is well known and much respected in the area. They are currently one of Bundaberg’s most prominent macadamia producers and processors, having previously been amongst Australia’s top small-crop producers. Stan La Vin has 40 years of development history and was previously Queensland state manager for one of Australia’s most successful development companies.
Their combined efforts have carefully nurtured the South Beach masterplanned community over more than 12 years, helping fully realise its promise as a family-friendly beachside destination and bringing needed community services to the area with shopping, schools, healthcare and businesses. Both are passionate in creating a visionary development by ensuring the South Beach masterplan has been audited and benchmarked by Green Globe Earthcheck as environmentally responsible and incorporating best practices in sustainability.
