The Master Plan

The Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan is the first major milestone in realising the vision for the Oxley Creek corridor – the start of our journey.

The Master Plan is a comprehensive long-term plan that will guide the creation of the future parkland, including outcomes such as new leisure and sport-based recreation activities, economic hubs, tourism, cultural heritage interpretation, environmental education and connections for people and wildlife.

The Master Plan explores opportunities, including:

  • improving flood resilience and water quality
  • restoring wildlife habitats
  • the reuse of stormwater and other measures that allow the natural environment to thrive
  • creating new open spaces for people to gather, relax, play and connect with others and nature
  • improving pedestrian and cycle connectivity along the creek and through its open spaces
  • supporting and enhancing the local economy through commercial opportunities, new facilities and activation.

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.

Delivering the Master Plan

The Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan is a high-level planning document spanning 20 kilometres of creek corridor. It is the overarching catalyst for change and enhancement.

Oxley Creek Transformation's core focus will now be on the delivery of the six priority projects. These projects will require further planning, technical studies, consultation and design in order to be realised. The delivery of these projects will also be contingent on budget and the completion of other critical supporting projects and initiatives.

Oxley Creek Transformation is committed to continuing the standard of stakeholder and community engagement activities, developed as part of the master planning process, in delivering the six priority projects and realising other strategic ideas.

We look forward to working together with the local community over the coming years to bring the vision to life.
