Plans have been revealed for a 150ha (16 million sq ft) wetlands development in Brisbane that will include a community hub, walking routes, events spaces and canoe and kayak facilities.

Formerly a site for wastewater treatment and waste disposal – and a source of pollution for the local area – the Archerfield Wetlands are part of a wider AU$100m (US69m, €62m, £53m) transformation project for the Oxley Creek tributary of the Brisbane River.

The redevelopment will see them "being given back to nature and rehabilitated into an environmental asset and a recreational destination."

A network of boardwalks and trails will be built to provide places for people to walk and there will be a site for canoeing and kayaking on the creek.

There will also be a community, educational and commercial hub, a large adventure play space, a multi-use games court, an events lawn and an amphitheatre.

Dotted throughout the parkland will be public artworks, bird hides and lookouts with views across the wetlands.

In the interests of the environment, a 60ha (6.5 million sq ft) area will be reserved for conservation and vegetation management.

Community feedback and input was factored into the plans following a four-week consultation period earlier this year. Following further planning and design work, the first phase of delivery is scheduled for next year.
