The current waterslide at North Star will be replaced with a new, ultra-modern double waterslide, doubling the fun for our North Star guests. Follow our Facebook page for weekly updates on the slide progress.
Week 1 – removal of old slides
North Star’s slides. With every twist and turn, they’ve brought decades of delight to kids of all ages from right across Australia. Must admit, we are all a little sad to see them go but we couldn’t be more EXCITED about the next phase of fun coming to North Star!
NO, WE DIDN’T PALM THEM OFF! North Star’s much-loved V.I.P.’s (VERY IMPORTANT PALMS) are safe and sound and receiving specialist VIP care and attention while they await the completion of the new slides. Once the slides are in place, the VIPs will be returned to their positions in North Star’s spectacular poolside gardens.
The North Star has gone out on a limb to ensure specialist TREEtment for North Star’s palms.
It was a long, long wait for the green light to build the new giant slides at North Star. Now construction has commenced and it’s all systems go. Every single minute of the wait will be worth it!
We hear the workers like to listen to a little rock music while they’re clearing the way for the new waterslides at North Star!
Bobcat drivers, along with a mini army of workers, are paving the way for big things to come at North Star. Stay tuned for more exciting updates on the new SLIDES!

Our pool area still resembles a construction zone although it’s all about clearing the way for our latest star attraction…. Brand new WATER SLIDES!
Our car park is currently full of surprises with trucks delivering bits and bobs of all shapes and sizes. All these parts are slowly coming together, like pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle. Our long-awaited slides and slowly but surely coming together and each and every day, we get just a little bit more excited.
Week 4 – Pieces of the Puzzle
All these bit and pieces are coming together and starting to resemble our future mega slides.
Week 5 – The Puzzle Continues
The first piece of the puzzle has made its way to the pool area. Don’t worry, you won’t need a step ladder to get down… our team will assemble on the trestle first before they find their forever home on the concrete pads.
Remember Prince Charming wasn’t always a handsome prince and the Ugly Duckling turned into a beautiful swan. Our North Star fairy tale is unfolding.
Week 6 – Last Piece of the Puzzle
Special delivery for the North Star this week. Our poles have arrived!
The giant puzzle continues. We can’t wait until every last piece is in it’s place.

The stairway to heaven is nearly complete!
