Mr Palmer has refused to comment on the plans, and is believed to be saving his big reveal for friday's press conference.
However, the Sunshine Coast Daily claimed it had received a tipoff from the same source who provided the it details of towering hotels and a giant ferris wheel, similar to the London Eye, at the resort.

Mr Palmer's company Blue Star Line has signed a memorandum of understanding with state-owned Chinese company CSC Jinling Shipyard to build the cruise liner, with the ship's maiden voyage from England to North America scheduled for late 2016.
Thankfully, the team has modernised the rescue equipment on board.
Mr Palmer said Titanic II would include ''proper life boats'', safety chutes and slides on an extra ''safety deck'' to make it compliant with today's regulations.
From deck D upwards, engineers Deltamarin has managed to keep the public rooms, passenger stairs, cabins and features in similar locations as in the original ship.
However, the board of his shipping company, Blue Star Line, is yet to approve the final design.
He has also announced he is standing for federal parliament in the seat held by the deputy prime minister and treasurer.
