14 Financial Feasibility Final Report This report assessed the financial feasibility of a cruise ship terminal at the Gold Coast. Table 12 Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal Business Case Financial Feasibility Final Report December Terminal Information Summary This report provides a succinct summary of the findings and implications of the four technical reports that have been undertaken to support the business case for this study: Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal Business Case Industry Overview; Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal Business Case Market Sounding and Demand Assessment; Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal Business Case Economic Analysis; and Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal Business Case Financial Feasibility. The report highlights the key messages from each of the technical reports. Table 13 Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal Information Summary December Navigation Simulation Council resolved in August 2012 (G ) to proceed with a navigational simulation exercise on the Gold Coast within the Broadwater. A navigational simulation exercise for cruise ships within the Broadwater was undertaken at "Smartship Australia" in Brisbane from the 26th to 30th November The objective of the exercise was to determine the feasibility of navigating selected cruise ships to and from the proposed terminal (Option 3) within the Gold Coast Broadwater in the most safe and effective way having regard to the proposed limits and depths of dredged areas and real time environmental forces. Sixty three simulations were undertaken utilising five different cruise ships representing vessels that are currently, previously or about to trade in Australian waters and are available as validated models at the Smartship facility in Brisbane. The five ships were also selected to provide the best range of size and propulsion systems that could be simulated over the time available. Qualified and experienced practicing pilots were in attendance to operate the simulator representing both Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) and Brisbane Marine Pilots (BMP).

The Notional Seaway Project principally consisted of: a cruise ship terminal and associated infrastructure on the northern end of the Spit; access channel and swing basin within the Seaway and Broadwater; a marina for super yachts and other vessels in the Marine Stadium; and parkland and recreational boating facilities. The objectives of the EIS were as follows: to provide information on the proposal and development process to the community and decision makers; to comprehensively indentify and evaluate all relevant issues associated with the proposal; to identify all potential environmental, cultural, social, transport and land use planning impacts of the preferred concept, and recommend infrastructure and facilities needs together with other design and operational measures required to minimise or compensate for adverse impacts and enhanced benefits; to consult with the community and relevant stakeholders in the process of identifying, assessing and responding to the impacts of the proposal; to identify all necessary licenses, planning and environmental approvals including approval requirements pursuant to the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, Coastal Protection and Management Act 1995, Integrated Planning Act 1997, Environmental Protection Act 1994, Fisheries Act 1994,NatureConservation Act 1992, Vegetation Management Act 1999 and other legislation and the Gold Coast City Planning Scheme; to provide an input to the decision making process, assisting with the determination of whether to refuse, accept or modify the proposal, approve it with conditions or carry out further studies; and Site Context Report - Broadwater Marine Project

Table 15 Notional Seaway Project Environmental Impact Statement January 2006 Notional Seaway Project Environmental Impact Statement January 2006 Contents Page 4.4 Final Options Definition Report 'Project Princess' Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal In July 2002, Cabinet endorsed the establishment of Cruise Shipping Infrastructure Inter-Departmental Working Group, chaired by the Department of State Development to progress cruise shipping infrastructure in Queensland. This report presents the findings of a technical study of the engineering, environmental, operational, planning and costing aspects of five locations for a Gold Coast cruise ship terminal commissioned by the Department of State Development. The final report was completed in September The phases of the study involved: (Phase one) definition of the concepts and the capture of all data and existing information relevant to each of the concepts. (Phase two) development of the concept for each of the five options and an assessment of the key issues with respect to technical feasibility, operational issues, environmental issues and planning and development issues. (Phase three) analysis of the risks considering the outcomes of the technical review, definition and description of the schemes, a review of these prior to their adoption, finalisation of quantities and sizes, the development of cost estimates and the preparation of the final option report. The five sites considered by this study were: Option 1: single berth wharf located in the Gold Coast Seaway, with the adjacent passenger terminal at the current location of The Spit carpark. Option 2: finger wharf with double berth located in the Marine Stadium, with the passenger terminal located on the western side of The Spit. Site Context Report - Broadwater Marine Project

17 Option 3: single berth wharf and passenger terminal located adjacent to the northern boundary of the Sea World Nara Resort. Option 4: single berth wharf and passenger terminal located on Wave Break Island. Option 5: single berth wharf and passenger terminal located on a reclaimed island, offshore of The Spit.

18 5. Hydrodynamics and Coastal Processes 5.1 Broadwater/Seaway Conceptual Model A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) incorporating independent experts was jointly initiated and funded by the State (Maritime Safety Queensland) and Council through the Gold Coast Waterways Steering Committee (WSC). The TAC guided the development of a suite of hydrodynamic models and collated relevant baseline data to provide a detailed understanding of the coastal processes at the Seaway as a baseline study to inform the Broadwater Masterplan. The WSC was formed in 2010 between the State, Council and industry (Marine Queensland) to improve the provision and quality of coastal, foreshore and waterway infrastructure within Gold Coast City. The WSC ceased in 2012 with the formation of the Gold Coast Waterways Authority. The conceptual model is the most up to date understanding of the various coastal processes influencing the Gold Coast Seaway and is provided as a series of web pages that includes schematic explanation. Table 18 May Broadwater Hydrodynamic Models One of the WSC s initiated Broadwater Masterplan investigations was to develop a suite of models to ascertain the hydrodynamic conditions of the Broadwater. This suite of calibrated models was developed internally by Council. Three hydrodynamic models were developed, namely the Regional Model, Sub- Regional Model and 3D Sediment Model (incomplete and not provided in the Virtual Data Room via Affinitext). The Regional Model extends from Mooloolaba in the north to Snapper Rocks in the south and is calibrated to 2004/2005 and 2009 recorded tide data. The Sub-Regional Model extends from Russell Island to Nerang River and it is calibrated to the 2004/2005 tide. Both Regional and Sub-Regional Models are based on the MIKE software suite that can simulate both tidal and flood scenarios. Wave and sediment transport capabilities have not been developed in this suite of models.

19 External Provision of Data Letter Council 5.3 Coastal and Hydrodynamic Investigations for Cruise Ship Terminal Options This study provides a high-level, preliminary assessment of potential impacts associated with a stand alone transit port cruise ship terminal inside the Gold Coast Broadwater. This assessment has used suitably validated numerical models to consider: Tidal regime changes; Storm tide impacts; Flood impacts; Morphodynamic changes; and Sedimentation potential. Initial modelling assessments considered six potential cruise ship terminal options, which was reduced to a shortlist of three options for more detailed modelling. The northern channel option and southern most option were removed from further assessment primarily due to generating significantly higher impacts than the other options. The western most swing basin option was removed from ongoing assessment due to the constraint of relatively shallow rock in this area. The completed assessments have intentionally been performed at a high level, with a large number of different assessments being undertaken to inform a broad range of hydrodynamic and morphodynamic impacts. This report will be available in Virtual Data Room via Affinitext in late July Table 20 Preliminary Coastal and Hydrodynamic Investigations for Cruise Ship Terminal Options Model files of the Preliminary Coastal and Hydrodynamic Investigations for Cruise Ship Terminal Options July 2013 July Surfing Assessment In 2012 Council resolved to investigate the potential to progress a stand alone transit port cruise ship terminal in the Gold Coast Broadwater which triggered significant community discussion and resulted in a number of surfing impact related media articles. In order to open discussions with the surfing community, Council facilitated a workshop including Professor Andrew Short to discuss the potential impacts of a cruise ship navigation channel on the famous surf break at South Stradbroke Island called The Other Side (TOS). A number of background documents assisted the discussions including: Notional Seaway Project Appendix H Wave Modelling Report and Historical Seaway Photos detailed within the Broadwater/Seaway Conceptual Model.
