Minjerribah Futures is a $24.75 million investment by the Queensland Government—led by the Department of Innovation, Tourism Industry Development and Commonwealth Games—to assist the economic transition of Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) from its traditional reliance on sand mining to a sustainable future as a globally recognised eco and cultural tourism destination.
Minjerribah Futures continues the work commenced by the North Stradbroke Island Economic Transition Strategy. It requires collaborative effort across all levels of government, working closely with the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) and engaging key partners in tourism, education and training, research, the business sector and the community.
QYAC has been appointed as the Project Lead for three projects under Minjerribah Futures. The Department of Housing and Public Works is the Project Delivery team responsible for managing the design, procurement and construction of works on behalf QYAC.
The three projects which Project Delivery is responsible for are:
- QUAMPI (Quandamooka Art, Museum and Performance Institute), Deanbilla Bay, Goompi (Dunwich)
- Yalingbila Bibula (Whale on the Hill), Mooloomba (Point Lookout)
- Minjerribah Ganaba (Place to Hear, Think and Understand), secondary campus Goompi (Dunwich)
The Minjerribah Ganaba project will refurbish and repurpose the former Dunwich (Goompi) State Secondary School to become the Minjerribah Ganaba. The Minjerribah Ganaba will provide a modern venue for delivering education training and employment on North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah).
The planned refurbishment will provide a fit-for-purpose facility with mobility access that contributes to the growth of the island’s education, training and employment sectors. It will provide accommodation and storage space for the QYAC corporate and business services, rangers, the Quandamooka Festival team as well as office space for island business and service providers.
The construction of Minjerribah Ganaba is programmed to be completed mid-2020.
