Supporting a brighter local future for the Redlands Coast

DISCOVER THE NEW TOONDAH HARBOUR

About

A vibrant new harbourside precinct for the Redland's community.

Toondah Harbour is an exciting new, modern coastal village that is set to transform the Redlands.

Along with a vibrant harbourside precinct, Toondah Harbour will also create stunning new foreshore parklands with a lagoon and water play area, walking, cycling and heritage trails, contemporary waterfront homes and marina coves.

Much-needed upgrades to the current ferry facilities will allow for easier access to Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and, potentially, the southern Moreton Bay islands.

A range of new recreational boating facilities including marina berths, a public pontoon and sheltered boat ramp with trailer parking will also bring additional tourism and economic benefits to the Redlands Coast community.

The Project

Connecting the Redlands Coast community to the bay islands.

Over decades, Toondah Harbour has evolved into a busy passenger port that is surrounded by housing, local parks, roads, car parking areas, adjoined by wetland habitat and conservation area.

Toondah Harbour’s revitalisation will be a catalyst for new business and infrastructure investment, bolstering confidence in the Redlands Coast economic future and creating ongoing local employment opportunities for residents.

Project timeline

To ensure minimal disruption to the community, including residents and visitors, the Toondah Harbour project will be completed in stages. Being developed by Walker Corporation, with support from both state and local government, Toondah Harbour is estimated to take 15-20 years to complete. There will be no disruption to ferry services or net loss of ferry car parking during construction.

Developer

Walker Corporation has a strong track record of understanding the needs and wants of the communities they’re creating for.

Australian property group, Walker Corporation, is working with Redland City Council and the Queensland Government to revitalise the Toondah Harbour precinct.

In late 2014, following a rigorous tender process, Walker Corporation was selected by the Queensland State Government and Redland City Council as the preferred development partner for Toondah Harbour.

Walker Corporation is working with state and local governments to deliver a sustainable new coastal destination for the Redlands Coast.

A new state-of-the-art port facility: The gateway to Minjerribah and the bay islands.

As the principal point of departure and arrival for ferry services between the mainland and Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island), Toondah Harbour is already an important regional gateway transporting over one million passengers each year.

A new state-of-the art port facility and additional dedicated public car parking spaces for ferry users, will increase the capacity for charter and additional operators, which will facilitate investment in exciting new nature and culture-based eco-tourism experiences for the Redlands Coast.

Fixing the port requires more than a simple upgrade of the landside facilities and amenities. The shallow and narrow Fison Channel that links Moreton Bay to Toondah Harbour requires significant works to create a safer, wider and deeper channel for the ferry operators and recreational vessels who share the channel, both now and into the future.

Toondah Harbour will feature a vibrant portside promenade, future proofed port infrastructure and new terminal facilities. These facilities include charter berths, a larger harbour basin and two-way navigation channel to meet future use, local fish market and produce stalls, wharf-front cafes, overwater dining, an active port promenade, bus interchange, drop off zones, state-of-the-art cycle facilities and 30% more car parking for ferry users. The masterplan also allows for Redland City Council to build a 500-space multi-deck car park in the future, if demand arises.

Marina plaza: A premier leisure and events destination

The marina plaza will be the heart of community life at Toondah Harbour.  Plans for this vibrant precinct include a boutique retail and dining precinct that will become a premier leisure and events destination. Hotel and convention facilities will provide corporate and leisure accommodation, for meeting and function facilities.

Shops and other businesses in the marina plaza precinct will be leisure and visitor focused, complementing the businesses already operating within the Cleveland CBD, creating new employment opportunities.

Residents and visitors to Toondah Harbour will draw much needed trade into the Cleveland CBD.

Unprecedented access to the Redland's foreshore

GJ Walter Park is a special place of local heritage significance and plays an important role in the community culture, recreation and lifestyle. Long before it was parkland, it was an important place for the Quandamooka People and retains its cultural heritage significance today.

A highlight of Toondah Harbour will be the improved recreational space and community amenities for Redlands residents, families and visitors. This will include the creation of Redlands’ own South Bank-style lagoon pool and water park play spaces, shaded picnic grounds with BBQ shelters, marina cove beach, and creating more foreshore areas to enjoy views of Minjerribah and the southern Moreton Bay islands.

The vision includes low-impact bayside walking and heritage trails, public art, accessible fishing platforms, and active new foreshore parkland with a wetland and cultural centre and boat ramp for non-motorised vessels.

Importantly, the dog park, koala habitat, cricket oval and much loved trees in GJ Walter Park will be retained.

Environmental

Toondah Harbour: A place for local life to thrive and grow

Protecting and enhancing GJ Walter Park, retaining the magnificent fig, Norfolk pine and tuckeroo trees, and enhancing the local environment is paramount for the revitalisation of Toondah Harbour as a place to thrive and grow.

Key environmental benefits of Toondah Harbour include a connected conservation corridor with new koala food tree planting,  living sea walls, protected rocky coves, oyster reefs and integral wetlands that play a stormwater management function.

A conservation park with wetland education and cultural centre will be complemented by low impact boardwalks, nature and heritage trails and a new visitor centre. The revitalisation will provide new exploration, play, and education areas for conservation and habitat protection programs.

Walker Corporation recognises the environmental and cultural significance of Toondah Harbour and the need to conserve and enhance its recreational and ecological functions. To ensure all environmental aspects of Toondah Harbour have been considered, including all ecological, cultural, economic and technical aspects, the project is undergoing an extensive environment assessment with an environmental impact statement (EIS) to be considered by the Australian Government in 2021.

Economic

Supporting a brighter local future for the Redlands Coast.

Toondah Harbour will bring much-needed economic benefits to the Redlands Coast, including the creation of local employment opportunities and ongoing tourism.

Benefiting local businesses, Redlands Coast residents, visitors and the wider community for generations to come, Toondah Harbour will transform Cleveland into an exciting new destination that locals will be proud to call their own.

Community

Supporting a brighter local future for the Redlands Coast.

Toondah Harbour will restore and strengthen the connections from the Cleveland CBD to the waterfront, adding to the identity and image of Cleveland.

We want to ensure that locals and residents can make informed comments and submissions to the State and Federal Governments to ensure an outcome that is in the best interests of the environment, economy and livability of the Redlands Coast and its future prosperity.

To support the preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement and future planning applications we are developing an extensive community engagement process that will allow members of the community to clearly understand the potential impacts and future opportunities this project may bring to the Redlands Coast.
