Today, I bring to the attention of the House a groundbreaking development in my electorate of Capricornia. It has captured the imagination of auto enthusiasts worldwide: Surf Lakes. This world-first technology not only promises to transform the way we experience surfing but also represents a testament to the innovative spirit that defines Australia. Surf Lakes, with its cutting-edge technology, has created a world-first surf destination that exceeds traditional limitations. The ability to generate perfect waves of varying sizes and shapes in a controlled environment is nothing short of extraordinary. This development not only caters to avid surfers or beginners learning to surf but also opens doors for aspiring athletes, offering them a training ground like never before.

Surf Lakes is a testament to Australian creativity, showcasing our commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining possibilities. Surf Lakes, with its cutting-edge technology, has seen great interest overseas, capturing the attention of developers and even Thor. As we witness the growing recognition of Surf Lakes overseas, it's a reminder of the untapped potential within our borders. Australian businesses are not only excelling in their domestic markets but also carving out a significant presence on the international stage. The success at Surf Lakes underscores the fact that our high-tech industries are not just keeping pace with global advancements but setting new benchmarks, establishing Australia as a hub for innovation.
