New sports complex open in Aura

Delivering on community needs in a growing neighbourhood.

In line with council's Environment and Liveability Strategy and the Open Space Network Blueprint, a new $5 million multi-sports complex has been delivered in Nirimba, Aura.

Opened in April 2021, the seven and a half hectare Nirimba District Sports Park will be home to a range of sporting teams and consists of four full-size rugby fields, four netball courts, two cricket fields with practice nets and shaded spectator seating. Lighting on the main rugby field and netball court provides the ability for day and night games, and complements the growing range of health and wellbeing facilities in the area.

The opening of the sports park marks the next step in delivering a network of sports parks required to maintain a healthy environment and liveable Sunshine Coast in 2041 for future generations.

The delivery of the sports park was made possible through an infrastructure agreement between council and the major developer. Through the agreement, land and facilities that meet resident's needs can be delivered in a timely manner as the Aura community continues to grow.

The open space network being planned through council's Environment and Liveability Strategy ensures equitable access to a range of experiences to encourage active and healthy lifestyles and supports community wellbeing. By strategically expanding the Sunshine Coast's green spaces, council is securing and activating space for future generations, improving conservation, and encouraging sport and recreation opportunities.
