Oxley Creek Transformation Project

About the project

Brisbane City Council has committed $100 million over 20 years to transform Oxley Creek, from its mouth at the Brisbane River to Larapinta, into a world-class green lifestyle and leisure destination. Established in 2017, its role is to plan, develop and manage Brisbane’s newest recreational asset in partnership with government, businesses, industry and residents.

Oxley Creek Transformation is committed to:

The Master Plan

The Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan developed in consultation with key local stakeholder groups and, through an extensive consultation program, captures the enthusiasm and support from the community.

The Master Plan provides an understanding of the strategic context of the corridor, suggests ideas for the future parkland and establishes a framework for future projects, plans and strategies to revitalise the Oxley Creek corridor.

The Master Plan informs future initiatives and investment to establish new leisure and recreation facilities, economic hubs, cultural heritage interpretation, environmental education and connections for people and wildlife.

The Master Plan guides future initiatives and investment to create a green lifestyle and leisure destination and demonstrates Brisbane City Council’s dedication to a clean and green lifestyle and enthusiasm for embracing emerging trends in city sustainability.

About Oxley Creek

Oxley Creek is one of the major tributaries of the Brisbane River. It is Brisbane’s longest creek and the only sand-based creek in the city.

Beginning in the forested mountain ranges of the Scenic Rim, south of Ipswich, it joins the Brisbane River approximately 70 kilometres downstream at Tennyson. Oxley Creek enjoys a natural drainage area of 270 square kilometres, spread across three local government areas, making it Brisbane’s largest creek catchment, but is also one of our most urbanised and polluted waterways.
