Oxley Creek Transformation Pty Ltd (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brisbane City Council) has prepared a draft Master Plan for a $100 million Project to ‘revitalise this corridor, transforming it into a world-class green lifestyle and leisure destination’.

Four priority projects proposed for the short to medium-term (0-10 years) are listed below:

  • Multi-use trials along 20 km of Oxley Creek (from Larapinta to Tennyson)
  • Oxley Creek Common Bird Sanctuary
  • Archerfield Wetlands Parkland and Oxley Creek Recreation and Interpretive Centre at Archerfield Wetlands
  • Nature-based Adventure Park at Larapinta

Two strategic plans prioritised for the short-term and on-going:

Strategic Corridor Restoration Plan

  • to direct rehabilitation efforts to ensure environmental benefits across the whole of Oxley Creek corridor.

Sustainable Economic Development Strategy

  • environmentally friendly economic hubs within, and along the edge of the Oxley Creek corridor will help fund its ongoing transformation.
