Mater is on a Mission to revolutionise the way our community experiences good health and wellbeing at Mater Hill, South Brisbane Campus.
Healthcare across the world is changing. So too, Mater continues to evolve. The Mater Hill Master Plan is Mater's response to the changing role of hospitals and health services into the future. Our vision is to transform Mater Hill into a contemporary, integrated health and wellbeing precinct, and vibrant multi-use community.
The Mater Hill Master Plan offers a holistic, planned approach of the site, considering the best use of Mater's landholdings, and presents a range of proposed sustainable development opportunities in the areas of health and healthcare, residential care and education.
This preliminary plan signals our intention for development. However, Mater may not undertake all of the initiatives proposed. Our plans will continue to be shaped by the healthcare needs of our community and all plans are subject to approval.
Building future focused facilities for Queensland by:
The plan has been developed in collaboration with Urbis and Conrad Gargett.
Mater Hill at South Brisbane has been Mater’s central point of care for Queenslanders for more than a century. Today it is home to hospitals, specialist medical clinics and ancillary services, a nationally accredited education and training facility and a world-class medical research institute.
Building on Mater's existing world-leading capabilities, the Mater Hill Master Plan is a conceptual framework for the proposed long-term, staged development of Mater’s South Brisbane campus.
Mater's approach to future healthcare will remain deeply connected to Mater's proud heritage and Mission and support Mater's growing statewide network.
We will continue to collaborate with stakeholders and partners to conduct further detailed planning that will help guide our final development plans for the site and are hosting a range of opportunities to engage with our community about the conceptual Master Plan and the MID application pathway. These opportunities have been created so you can view the concept Master Plan, talk to members of our team and provide your feedback.
Preliminary stakeholder engagement - is now closed
We want to announce the preliminary stakeholder engagement phase concluded on Monday 13 September 2021.
The feedback received has been carefully considered by the project team and will be used to inform the development of the Master Plan and the technical assessments that will accompany the Ministerial Infrastructure Designation (MID).
The endorsement request will include a summary of the proposal and the outcome of the preliminary stakeholder engagement.
The MID process will include a public consultation phase. This is planned for July / August 2022. In the interim, we encourage stakeholder feedback to email@example.com for consideration.
Following the preliminary stakeholder engagement phase, Mater and the consultant team are currently preparing reports for the lodgement of the MID application. Mater expects to lodge this application in or around late July 2022.
Once this application is lodged, the public consultation phase will commence. We anticipate that this will begin in late July / early August 2022.
However, it is important to note that timelines and resources continue to be impacted by Mater’s community response to the global pandemic and other external factors, as was experienced with the recent flooding event across South East Queensland.
COVID-19 safe practices will be applied to all engagement activities in line with the Queensland Government guidelines in place at the time the activity is delivered. Given this ongoing uncertainty, the engagement process will be flexible and able to adapt to rapidly changing conditions readily.
Throughout the Master Plan process, one of the ways in which Mater will be providing updates to the community will be via newsletters.

Mater has developed a conceptual plan to meet the changing healthcare needs of our community. The plan takes a holistic approach, outlining the proposed long-term development of Mater’s campus at South Brisbane.
Mater’s vision is to transform the site into a contemporary, integrated health, education, research and wellbeing precinct. This will create a vibrant community destination where people will come for healthcare, wellbeing and relaxation.
The Mater Hill Master Plan focuses on the 20-30 year horizon of the campus.
The preliminary stakeholder engagement phase concluded on Monday 13 September 2021.
The project team has carefully considered the preliminary feedback received and this will inform the Master Plan and the technical assessments that will accompany the Ministerial Infrastructure Designation (MID) application. Mater expects to lodge this application in or around late July 2022.
We anticipate that the Minister will consider our submission in the fourth quarter of 2022 and decide on the MID later in 2022.
The Master Plan provides for mixed-use facilities, more landscaped green spaces, enhanced site navigation, and accessibility to support the local community while celebrating our heritage.
A more detailed conceptual map and artist’s impression of Mater Hill’s potential future development opportunities is available here.
As part of the master planning process, we are undertaking health service planning to understand the future demand for our clinical services. This assessment will provide information on the best ways to plan for the increase and changing needs of the community regarding infrastructure, technology and patient care.
Yes. The intent and purpose of the Master Plan is to look at renewing our ageing infrastructure, including our emergency department and other clinical services provision.
The Master Plan is a conceptual master plan rather than a detailed design. Understanding Mater’s needs and future demands and our requirements going into the future are being carefully considered.
The Master Plan aligns with the local planning scheme as defined by Brisbane City Council.
The Mater Hill Master Plan has been developed to consider the Mater Medical Centre and Mater Private Hospital. However, the focus of the proposed MID is Mater owned land south of the busway (excluding the existing Mater Hill carpark).
Mater’s plan for redevelopment is long-term with a lifespan of 20-30 years. Mater will continue to work closely with the local community and stakeholders over the coming decades.
Important impact areas on the local community throughout the life of the project will include managing traffic and construction.
Mater will continue to update the community on its plans regarding key areas of impact and encourages feedback for consideration as part of the MID process.
The Master Plan will need to incorporate the impacts of key Olympic infrastructure in and around South Brisbane. We will be liaising with the Brisbane 2032 Olympics Task Force.
The MID process requires Mater to engage the community through a formal consultation process. Mater has already completed the preliminary stakeholder engagement phase and plans to commence the Formal Consultation in August 2022.

An infrastructure designation-commonly known as a Ministerial Infrastructure Designation (MID)-allows for the delivery of essential community infrastructure. It provides an alternative process to lodging a development application with the relevant local government.
The Planning Minister makes all decisions relating to MID requests. You can find out more about the MID process here.
