Countdown to the 2032 Brisbane Olympics starting.

More olympic news this week as the Brisbane City Council released its design for an Olympic sporting precinct on the site of a Harness Racing track in the city’s inner north at Albion.

This is great news for people living or thinking about investing in the north western suburbs as the Olympic games venues will be right upon our doorstep.

The proposed 12-court indoor arena on the site of the city’s primary harness racing track at Breakfast Creek, with an Olympic sporting precinct mooted across the 29ha site.

It would be a dedicated greenfield and sporting precinct, with no plans for commercial or residential development on the significant inner-city site.

“This is the beginning of what we need to get done … OCOG (the Organising Committees of the Olympic Games) has the final say on Olympic venues but we need to start the conversation now,” Cr Adams said.

“There is a great opportunity to seize this moment and get a legacy for Brisbane residents for the years to come.

“We’ve got Brothers Rugby and Queensland Cricket on the site and we’ve been working with them to work through a design that will see us through decades to come for our sporting future.


There is a firm belief that this needs to be green space, it needs to be a sporting precinct, it needs to have facilities and sporting infrastructure. There’s been a lot of density around the RNA, around Hamilton Northshore and so we think it’s already a bit lacking in sporting facilities in those areas and this really gives a boost to a slightly tired Albion area.”

The indoor sports centre for the 2032 Olympics and Paralympic Games will comprise 12 basketball courts to accommodate basketball, badminton, volleyball, goal ball and wheelchair rugby.

The Albion and Breakfast Creek areas were severely impacted during the recent Brisbane floods and Adams said the council was working with Queensland Urban Utilities on flood mitigation strategies for overland flow and water harvesting to irrigate the fields.

“This is a concept plan that Brisbane City Council is putting out for discussion. We’ve been talking with the state government and OCOG, so they know what our designs are.

“This is not the final concept but it’s one that we think will have an excellent outcome.”
