Support for a bigger, better Browne Park
There has been strong support for an upgrade to Rockhampton’s iconic football ground Browne Park following a feasibility study with community and consultation with key stakeholders.
More than 230 people who completed the questionnaire were supportive of an upgrade to the ground but noted that noise and parking must be considered.
An upgrade to Browne Park could open opportunities for major events including National Rugby League (NRL) and concerts to travel to Rockhampton.
The Queensland Government has committed $150 000 for the study and it is expected to be available to the State Government in September
