In 2016 Brisbane City Council announced the $100 million Oxley Creek Transformation project to revitalise the Oxley Creek corridor from the Brisbane River to Larapinta into a world class green, lifestyle and leisure destination.
Oxley Creek Transformation Pty Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary company of Brisbane City Council, was established in 2017 to guide the vision for the corridor, delivering a range of environmental, social and economic benefits to the community.
Oxley Creek Transformation is committed to:
reducing the impacts of industry and development on the creek and its surrounds
embedding flood resilience into the corridor
growing its rich network of green spaces
transforming Oxley Creek corridor into a vast multi-use parkland
attracting investment to unlock its economic potential
collaborating with business, industry, government and the community.
Our three goals will focus on the local environment, social/community and economy in the corridor.
Oxley Creek Transformation will deliver the framework of the future parkland through its three goals which focus on the environment, social/community and economy.
These goals lead us to our future ideas for this corridor which will:
activate existing spaces and creating new places for people to gather, relax, play and connect with others and nature
facilitate a deeper appreciation and awareness of nature, inspiring greater environmental conservation and demonstrating leadership in sustainability
establish economic hubs that leverage off natural attractions to fund revitalisation efforts, inject vitality and draw investment to the area
attract interest and investment to sustainably revitalise the corridor and boost the local economy.
The Oxley Creek Transformation corridor will be re-imagined as an urban playground, an incubator of innovation and a sanctuary for wildlife. This transformation will showcase some of city's natural assets and unique bio-diversity values.
Our core focus is to plan, collaborate and create.
The core focus for Oxley Creek Transformation is to:
plan – synthesise ideas and opportunities and explore innovations to design for the future
collaborate – partner with the community, industry, businesses and government stakeholders to achieve a common vision
create – establish new lifestyle and leisure destinations and the systems they need to flourish.
