Breakfast Creek Sports Precinct concept

Brisbane City Council is pleased to present the 29-hectare Breakfast Creek Sports Precinct concept. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to utilise entirely government-owned land to create one of the most accessible sporting facilities in the world, while addressing the community need for indoor courts and sporting fields in the inner north.

About the project

Council has worked with Brothers Rugby Club and Queensland Cricket to create the Breakfast Creek Sports Precinct concept. 

The proposed precinct would be home to the new 5-hectare Brisbane Indoor Sports and Para Sports Centre, alongside improved sporting and community facilities.

As we get our city ready to host the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the precinct will play an important role in hosting a range of Olympic and Paralympic competition, and will benefit residents, local sporting clubs and the wider South East Queensland region in the lead-up to and long after the 2032 Games.

Concept plans and inclusions are still being explored and considered, and Council will keep the community informed as these plans progress.

Council looks forward to working with the State Government and other key stakeholders to progress this concept.

Key benefits

The proposed concept will deliver a number of benefits to residents, including:

  • 29-hectares of premier sustainable sport and recreation facilities for communities of all abilities to enjoy

  • new 5-hectare Brisbane Indoor Sports and Para Sports Centre within the precinct

  • 185% increase in public greenspace - Crosby Park parkland and Dog Off Leash Area to be retained with additional greenspace added, including a generous green corridor connecting Crosby Road and Breakfast Creek

  • environmentally sustainable and efficient design including underground water harvesting for sports field irrigation, flood resilient design and planning, and potential energy generation

  • 130% increase in community sporting facilities and fields - addresses community need for indoor courts and sporting fields in the inner north

  • reduced lighting and noise impacts for local residents

  • improved access and public transport connectivity

  • improved parking facilities

  • additional capacity to meet the expansion needs of on-site sporting clubs, accommodating the growing interest and support of junior and women’s programs.

Brisbane Indoor Sports and Para Sports Centre 

The proposed Brisbane Indoor Sports and Para Sports Centre will be a landmark all-abilities venue, and will accommodate basketball, wheelchair basketball, goalball, netball and volleyball courts, badminton facilities and a para-athlete training gym.

The sports centre will support Brisbane’s sports and para-sports communities through active sport participation and community programs. For the 2032 Games, the centre will play host to Olympic basketball and Paralympic wheelchair basketball events, with a 12,000 person seating capacity.

The centre will feature 12 state-of-the-art indoor court facilities which will cater for a range of sporting codes. Alongside a para-athlete training gym, an additional four indoor courts will be dedicated for para-sports activity. There will also be six external 3x3 basketball courts.

Under the concept plan, the proposed centre would be built on the current Brothers Rugby Club site at Crosby Park. Brothers Rugby Club would be relocated to the Breakfast Creek side of the precinct and benefit from new facilities and additional sporting fields.
