StatusConcept Development

Council is working with the Australian and Queensland Governments to develop a state of the art entertainment facility that will transform the arts and entertainment industry for the region.

The construction of a proposed North Australia Concert Hall and Arts Precinct will facilitate the attraction of world class national and international artists, further establishing Townsville’s reputation as the events capital of North Australia.

Progress continues, with commitment from the Australian Government for the development of a Concert Hall business case underway. The North Australia Concert Hall and Arts Precinct is proposed to be situated at the current Dean Street Carpark, adjacent to the Queensland Country Bank Stadium precinct. This location will complement existing CBD amenities with its close proximity to surrounding restaurants, hotels, retail facilities and landmarks, and will generate significant economic benefit and job creation for the region.
