Archerfield Wetlands draft Precinct Plan
The Archerfield Wetlands draft Precinct Plan has been released and is available for community feedback until Monday, 15 July 2019.
Archerfield Wetlands, a priority project identified in the Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan, will become a major new recreation, education and environmental parkland for the region.
The draft Precinct Plan will see 150 hectares of underutilised green space transformed into a one-of-a-kind recreational destination and environmental asset for Brisbane.
Our focus is now on progressing our priority projects. These six projects will require further planning, technical studies, and consultation in order to be realised.
We will continue to collaborate with businesses, industry, government and the local community to ensure that the ideas and projects from the Master Plan become a reality.
A rich history
Oxley Creek is one of the major tributaries of the Brisbane River. It is Brisbane's longest creek and the only sand-based creek in the city.
Beginning in the forested mountain ranges of the Scenic Rim, south of Ipswich, it joins the Brisbane River approximately 70 kilometres downstream at Tennyson. Oxley Creek enjoys a natural drainage area of 270 square kilometres, spread across three local government areas, making it Brisbane’s largest creek catchment, but is also one of our most urbanised and polluted waterways.
