Project Details


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 Yalingbila Bibula (Whale on the Hill) will tell the story of the island’s Traditional Owners and their continuous connection to the majestic Eastern Australian Humpback Whales, who regularly migrate past the island in greater numbers and in closer proximity to shore than anywhere else in the world.


The Yalingbila Bibula shelter will house the 15-metre skeleton of the Yalingbila (whale) that washed ashore at Mooloomba (Point Lookout) in 2011. The shelter will also include information on Eastern Australian Humpback whales, share the traditional stories and connection of the Quandamooka People to whales and reveal the key role Mooloomba has played in international whale research and whaling politics. The shelter will contain a hydrophone and University of Queensland research pod, so visitors can enjoy the unique experience of watching a whale pass and hear its song, look at its skeleton and talk to a researcher simultaneously.


The proposed shelter will have a minimal footprint, be culturally sensitive, and partially restore the surrounding landscape and vegetation.


The construction of Yalingbila Bibula 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 Yalingbila Bibula 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 the trade packages.
