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 QUAMPI will be a centrepiece for cultural tourism and education on the island. The centre will become a unique Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) venue and major eco-tourism facility for sharing cultural tourism. It will be a drawcard for domestic and international visitors looking to experience Quandamooka culture and educational experiences.
The project aims to create a centrepiece for cultural tourism and education that will:
- Include an indoor display area, reception area and office
- Create a place where visitors can connect with and learn about Minjerribah’s culture and history
- Facilitate the development and interpretation of Quandamooka history, language and culture
- Provide an important community building project and local construction jobs
- Provide employment opportunities for Quandamooka people at the centre
- Ensure Quandamooka elders can act as custodians.
The QUAMPI should capitalise on Minjerribah’s cultural heritage and environmental values and promote this to the wider community.
The construction of the QUAMPI Project will be delivered through a traditional, fully documented, lump sum contract utilising the Department of Housing and Public Works Special Conditions of Contract and Annexure AS2124-1992 (to be read in conjunction with Australian Standard® General conditions of contract AS2124-1992). The procurement of a head contractor for the project is planned to occur in mid-2020.
The construction of the QUAMPI is programmed to be completed early 2021.
Contractors may express interest for the indicative works packages and all expressions of interest, prior to the head contractor construction tender process, will be provided to the shortlisted tenderers for their consideration. The overall responsibility for the award of all trade packages rests solely with the head contractor.
The awarded head contractor will have the opportunity to utilise the ICN Gateway to tender their work packages however contractors are to note that the awarded head contractor may not opt to utilise the ICN Gateway post contract award.
The head contractor may change the trade packages after the project is awarded and there may be the requirement to re-submit EOI’s should the trade packages change and the contractor opts to utilise the ICN Gateway for the tendering and award of the trade packages.
