Future of the Gabba Train Station: Fighting for Alternative Visions

Woolloongabba will soon have a new train station delivered as part of the Cross River Rail project. Situated on a huge 5.5 hectare publicly owned site, the ground above the Gabba Station could become a beautiful public park with essential community facilities, or a space for much-needed public housing – or both. But according to the State Government’s visualisations and draft land use plans, the site is set to have as many as 12 new highrise towers of up to 30 storeys.

Join local Councillor Jonathan Sri and other local experts to hear more about the current plans for the site, potential alternatives, and how you can get involved in the campaign to win a community vision for the new Gabba Station.

COVID INFO: This event is being organised in Jurgens St Park (next to the Woolloongabba Substation) so that residents can practice physical distancing. Please bring a picnic blanket and sit together with your family group while maintaining 1.5m between other groups. Remember to hand sanitise regularly and stay home if you are feeling unwell.

We'd like to acknowledge that this gathering will be taking place on the lands of the Jagera and Turrbal peoples, and we pay respects to their elders past and present. Aboriginal sovereignty was never ceded, and many past and continuing injustices of invasion, theft and colonisation are yet to be rectified and compensated.
