Pelican Waters Resort joins The Creek stable

Off the back of a successful summer carnival, The Creek has announced a brand-new sponsor, with Pelican Waters Resort joining The Creek’s sponsorship stable from 2022.

The Creek CEO Scott Steele welcomed Pelican Waters Resort, who will sponsor the mile rate and monthly races from 2022.

“It’s great to have the Perks family (who operate the resort) on board with us at Albion Park,” Mr Steele said.

“They’re a keen racing family with racehorses across both codes and thoroughly enjoy the trotters.

“We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Pelican Waters Resort and believe this is a great platform for better things to come.

“With the Inter Dominion set to be staged at Albion Park in 2023, Pelican Waters Resort will be an ideal destination for those looking to be part of the series.”

Ash and Liza Perks took over management of Pelican Waters Resort in early 2021.

“We were visiting Queensland as a family and watching our horse race at Corbould Park in the Sunshine Coast,” they said.

“Whilst we were here, we really fell in love with the area, the lifestyle and the people here.

“We wanted to find somewhere that we could add value to the Sunshine Coast and it’s community.

“So we ended up at Pelican Waters Resort, a quiet, sophisticated, relaxed atmosphere but accessible to virtually anyone, and a place that we all love waking up to every morning.

“Our vision for our Resort is to create an amazing experience from the minute our guests arrive to the minute they leave.”

The couple said the sponsorship with The Creek would help generate great exposure for their business.

“Albion Park races three times a week and every race has a mile rate – across pacers and trotters,” they said.

With breathtaking views of the heritage-listed Glasshouse Mountains and the Greg Norman designed Pelican Waters Golf Course, Pelican Waters Resort offers a variety of stylish accommodation options.
