The Queensland Government has prepared a draft master plan that outlines a shared, long-term vision for the future of Gumpi (Dunwich). The draft master plan reflects community and stakeholder feedback previously received.

Consultation on the draft master plan has now closed and all feedback will be reviewed to help inform the final master plan.

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).

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 (Dunwich). 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
  6. Car parking formalisation

Gumpi vs Goompi: the spelling of Gumpi in the master plan is consistent with the Jandai Language Dictionary. The master plan was updated to Gumpi in 2020 to reflect the spelling in the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation’s annual report.
