FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail

Brisbane City Council have announced the release of the Master Plan for the transformation of Oxley Creek and provides a vision for the creek corridor over the next 20 years.

The Master Plan is a comprehensive long-term guidance plan to revitalise the Oxley Creek catchment, creating parklands, sport and leisure and recreation activities for families and residents.

“Oxley Creek will be transformed into a world-class green, lifestyle and leisure destination, befitting our New World City”

Master Plan Details
– Improve flood resilience and water quality
– Restore wildlife habitats
– Allow the natural environment to thrive
– Open spaces for people to relax, play and connect
– Pedestrian and cycle connectivity
– Enhance the local economy




The Brisbane City Council outline, “the Master Plan proposes the creation of a 20-kilometre recreation trail from the Brisbane River at Tennyson to a new Nature-based Adventure Parkland in Larapinta, creating a world-renowned birdwatching destination at Oxley Creek Common, progressively improving habitats, vegetation, waterway stability and water quality and building a regional parkland and visitor centre at Archerfield Wetlands”.

Delivery
Six priority projects focused on short to medium-term investment have been selected.
– The Greenway Choose
– Oxley Creek Common Bird Sanctuary
– Archerfield Wetlands Parkland and Interpretive Centre
– Nature-based Adventure Parkland
– Strategic Corridor Restoration Plan Chart
– Sustainable Economic Development Strategy

The Greenway Choose – your own adventure
The Greenway will become the central spine for moving through the Oxley Creek corridor, acting as the unifying physical element for all destinations. It will also provide easy access to side trails for bushwalking, birdwatching and horse riding and link into broader local walking and cycling networks.

Oxley Creek Common Bird Sanctuary – Discover birds in the wild
Future investment will focus on enhancing and expanding this habitat to attract more native fauna species, particularly birds, and support a richer array of flora. The Common will become a place where visitors and locals can learn about biodiversity, sustainability and ornithology and enjoy the natural world.

Archerfield Wetlands Parkland and Interpretive Centre – Let nature restore your soul

Nature-based Adventure Parkland – Get outdoors and get active
The new Nature-based Adventure Parkland in Larapinta will have plenty to fire the imagination, with creative play spaces for children and new bushwalking, birdwatching, canoeing and picnicking facilities planned.

Sustainable Economic Development Strategy – Laying the foundation for prosperity
The Strategic Corridor Restoration Plan (Restoration Plan) will direct rehabilitation efforts within the Oxley Creek corridor to ensure a holistic approach that maximises environmental benefits across the whole corridor.

The plan was announced by Graham Quirk, Brisbane Lord Mayor in late 2016 with an $100 million commitment to the scheme and the appointment of a new managing authority Oxley Creek Transformation, who would be committed to implement the vision for the 15 km master planned recreation corridor.

Mr Quirk outlined, “the draft Master Plan translates our ambition to make Brisbane one of the world’s top 10 lifestyle cities into practical action. Recognising the environment as central to our city’s liveability, it outlines projects and initiatives to revitalise our most urbanised waterway. Oxley Creek will be reimagined as an urban playground, economic incubator, environmental asset and an incredible new tourism destination.”

The master plan extends to Graceville, Sherwood, Rocklea, Corinda, Oxley, Archerfield, Willawong, Acacia Ridge, Pallara and Heathwood. The boundaries begin from the Brisbane River at Tennyson out to Larapinta and the Brisbane City Council boundary.
