Brisbane 2032

Brisbane 2032 Infrastructure Program

Hosting the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games brings with it unmissable opportunities to accelerate development across the state. The Brisbane 2032 infrastructure program includes 18 new or upgraded projects that are being pre-planned to meet the needs of our growing regions and brought forward to be built in time for the Games, not because of the Games. It also creates the opportunity for our state to build and develop multi-purpose infrastructure, such as the athlete villages which will be used for permanent housing post Brisbane 2032.

The Brisbane 2032 infrastructure program will be funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments under the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games Intergovernmental Agreement. The $7 billion-plus infrastructure program will reshape some of Queensland’s most significant venues and precincts, leaving a legacy for the community well after 2032.

Review of the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic venue Master Plan

The 60-day review into the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic venue Master Plan is well underway.

Led by former Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, the review team has been consulting with a broad range of stakeholders and is due to hand down its findings on 18 March 2024.

Community submissions officially closed on 21 February 2024 to ensure the review team has enough time to consider all feedback.

The review is looking at major sports venues (the Gabba and the Brisbane Arena) as well as new and upgraded minor sports venues.

The review recommendations will assist the Queensland Government to determine the infrastructure investment needed to provide appropriate 2032 Games venues, and will consider key criteria including:

  • value for money
  • fitness-for-purpose
  • deliverability
  • community legacy.

  • Northshore Hamilton is just one of the four locations where Brisbane 2032 athletes will be based.

    This will add to an already popular precinct, which is home to landmarks such as Portside, Eat Street Markets and Alcyone Hotel, and some of Brisbane’s best waterfront living.

    Northshore’s prime waterfront location, its proximity to the CBD and competition and training venues, along with seamless transport connections, make it an ideal location – even after the Games are over.

    After the Games, Northshore will deliver a diverse residential offering, including aged care, retirement living, social and affordable housing, key worker, hotel, build-to-rent and market accommodation. Two other athlete villages on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast will also be converted to provide new permanent dwellings for South East Queensland’s growing population within vibrant mixed-use precincts.

    Project status: More information on the additional athlete villages will be available as planning continues.

Once the shotgun range is upgraded, the facility will be the only venue in the southern hemisphere able to host all shooting disciplines in one place. The facility was redeveloped to host the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games events, and minor facility upgrades will further modernise the venue, ready to host Brisbane 2032 events.

The project will create more seating, improved facilities for athletes and officials, and multi-purpose community spaces.

    Project status: A Project Validation Report is underway.

  • Demand for mountain biking facilities has increased rapidly in South-East Queensland and is forecast to continue to grow.
