Woolloongabba Station Precinct
The Woolloongabba station precinct will be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use hub, linking commercial, residential and retail development with access to world-class public transport and one of Australia’s most iconic sports stadiums.
Concepts for the future of the precinct include a land bridge to span Main Street providing easy access on game days, as well as improved public spaces and opportunities for new retail and commercial developments that will encourage even more visitors to the area, outside of major event days.
Revitalising Woolloongabba's urban heart
Exciting concepts for the future of the precinct include a pedestrian land bridge to span Main Street providing a safe and vibrant ‘front door’ to The Gabba for sports fans and event attendees. The station-to-stadium connection will make game days easier for fans and families, and provide alternative pedestrian access to the Cross River Rail and South East Busway stations.
Turn up and go transport
The new underground Woolloongabba station will provide passengers with high frequency rail services for the first time, opening up new public transport options for local residents. Just steps away, the South East Busway will allow you to transfer between trains and buses to take you anywhere you need to go, all around Brisbane.
Transforming everyday life
Once Cross River Rail is operational, the new Woolloongabba station will be just a few minutes journey from the CBD, making the station site an ideal location for urban renewal and economic development opportunities. New and improved public spaces and the world-class public transport made possible by Cross River Rail, will transform everyday life for Woolloongabba residents as much as it will improve access for visitors to The Gabba on game days.
Woolloongabba Station and Precinct concepts
Cross River Rail doesn’t just mean a new high-capacity underground station for The Gabba, it means there is an opportunity to develop a new ‘Station to Stadium’ precinct above the station. This video includes concept developments and designs which are not final or approved.

Woolloongabba Station Precinct Concept Images
Community feedback on preliminary concept plans for the Woolloongabba precinct strongly supported the significantly improved public transport service Cross River Rail will bring, the new station-to-stadium pedestrian connection to The Gabba, and the park and green space opportunities.
Further planning will take a partnered approach with the community and key stakeholders to balance the mix of uses for the precinct.
