In 2018 we asked Queenslanders to have your say on Queensland's Sport and Active Recreation Strategy - its all about the future of sport in Queensland.
We asked - what we’re doing well, but especially what we could be doing better to make sport more accessible, more fair, and more fun for Queenslanders?
We launched the public consultation last year at Rochedale Rovers FC at Underwood Park, supported by a team of Sports Strategy Ambassadors from Queensland’s major sporting codes.
364 days later Queensland's first ten-year plan for sport and recreation, Activate! Queensland 2019-2029, was handed back to the public across the road from where it all started, the Netball Courts at Underwood Park.
$506.4 million will be invested in the next three years to ensure that local kids have greater opportunities for participation as the Palaszczuk Government supports them to get off the sidelines and into the game.
By investing $24 million into the new Community Use of Schools and Active Schools initiatives, the Palaszczuk Government is breaking down further barriers to getting kids active.
Schools and clubs are set to benefit from sporting infrastructure projects and new staff dedicated to reducing the administrative burden, and kids will benefit from enhanced physical activity education and access to first-class sporting facilities.
Queensland local sporting infrastructure is set to receive a huge boost with the Palaszczuk Government investing $40 million on 150 community infrastructure projects across the State.
