North Queensland Stadium

Townsville, Queensland

The North Queensland Stadium is a 25,000-seat facility, with the potential to expand to 30,000 seats in the future.  With an objective of creating a world-class facility that retains the warmth and community-feel of a local sporting ground, the Stadium will redefine the way sport and entertainment is experienced in the region.

It was important that the design responded to the environmental qualities and unique identity of its location.  Our approach was to design ‘open, breathable spaces’ with soft edges, operable elements and permeable screens. A choice of local materials, including stone and timber, reference a relaxed lifestyle.

Once complete in 2020, North Queensland Stadium will be an urban attraction, drawing tourists and locals back into Townsville’s city heart.

This project is being completed in partnership with local practice, Counterpoint Architects.
