Oxley Creek Transformation

Brisbane City Council has committed $100 million over 20 years to transform Oxley Creek, from its mouth at the Brisbane River to Larapinta, into a world-class green lifestyle and leisure destination.

Nature-based Adventure Parkland

Oxley Creek Transformation are now constructing the Nature-based Adventure Parkland in Larapinta, with the parkland due to open in mid-2020.


The new Nature-based Adventure Parkland will have plenty to fire the imagination, with a lakeside boardwalk, bushwalking trails, birdwatching and picnic facilities, and an exciting nature-based playground incorporating water-play to provide a creative play space for children.

Archerfield Wetlands

Oxley Creek Transformation have now released the Archerfield Wetlands Precinct Plan.

The Precinct Plan will see 150 hectares of green space, just 12 kilometres from Brisbane’s city centre, transformed into a one-of-a-kind recreational destination and environmental asset for Brisbane.

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.
