Mr McGarvie said the 100ha land needed some rubbish removal and erosion correcting before the $216 million project could begin.

"It's a big project, it's the biggest this region's ever seen and we're very proud that we're able to bring it to the Fraser Coast with no government funding involved," he said.

Mr McGarvie the Fraser Coast Training and Employment Support Service (TESS) was still looking at resumes that were handed in for the available positions.

"The number of applicants was overwhelming," he said.

"They've been sorting through them."
