Herston Quarter Redevelopment


The Herston Quarter will be redeveloped into a world-class health and wellbeing precinct that showcases the area's local heritage.

Australian Unity has developed a vision for the site that will enhance the Herston Quarter’s health services including hospital care, aged care, medical education and cutting edge research. The vision for the site also includes a range of other uses including residential, retail, and public spaces.

The Queensland Government will be inviting the community to comment on the draft development scheme for the Herston Quarter. You can find out more about this process at the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning website.
