Declared in 2008, the 15.6-hectare Queensland Children's Hospital State Development Area (SDA) located adjacent to Brisbane's existing Mater Children's Hospital was established to facilitate the delivery of a hospital and associated infrastructure. Declaration of the SDA also enabled the rearrangement of land uses within the SDA and regulation of new development.

The Queensland Children's Hospital SDA provided for the development of the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, opened in 2014, the Centre for Children's Health Research, associated infrastructure and the continuation of the existing schools within the SDA.
