The theme park, which would create thousands of construction jobs and more than 500 permanent positions, would be built on a former dairy farm at Nerang between the train station and Metricon Stadium, the home of the Gold Coast Suns.

There are also plans for bars, restaurants, a wedding centre, hotels, resorts, a residential community and a tranquil wetlands environment on a 44-hectare parcel of land.

Songcheng operates 30 theme parks in China and has been listed as one of the world's top 10 amusement park companies.
