Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre upgrade

This consultation concluded on 3 June 202. 

As part of a master plan prepared by the Department of Housing and Public Works, the Queensland Government is proposing a 10-year upgrade program to the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre.

The master plan and proposed works (PDF, 8.91MB) outlines the proposed changes.

What is changing

Proposed new works will include:

  • modern, multi-purpose indoor sports courts that will house a small gym, café, and administration centre
  • relocating the car park to allow for the new indoor sports courts facility
  • providing beach access to the local community via the car park from Currimundi Road.

Why we’re doing this

These proposed improvements are part of a three-year $40 million investment to transition the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre, Gold Coast Recreation Centre and Townsville Sport and Recreation Precinct into active precincts that encourage and inspire increased physical activity in the community.

The proposed works will support the delivery of the Activate! Queensland 2019-2029 sport and active recreation strategy by:

  • providing greater community access to the precinct
  • providing places and spaces that invite an active lifestyle
  • providing a welcoming community space for everyone
  • encouraging increased physical activity participation.

The new facilities, programs and activities will help make the centre more accessible to the community as well as to elite athletes.

What happens next

Once this initial public consultation phase finishes, the Ministerial Infrastructure Designation process begins. This includes the public notification process, which will be advertised locally.

During the public notification phase, an Environmental Assessment Report will be made available for public review.

These reports are being commissioned:

  • Traffic Impact Assessment
  • Bushfire Hazard Assessment and Management Plan
  • Ecological Assessment and Protected Plant Flora Survey
  • Conceptual Stormwater Management Plan and Flood Hazard Assessment.
