Brisbane to have $100m aquarium as Maritime Museum is redeveloped

Amy Remeikis reports in the Brisbane Times (16.3.16) on a state government proposal to redevelop Brisbane’s Maritime Museum, including a new aquarium attraction at South Bank.

‘All the best cities have them – Sydney, Melbourne, Shanghai, Springfield.

‘Now Brisbane could have its very own aquarium, after the State government moved a $100 million market-based proposal to redevelop the heritage-listed Maritime Museum at South Brisbane to the next stage.

‘But the government, which announced the proposal but is not involved beyond setting up the market-led proposal program through Treasury, can’t describe what the site will look like, what marine life it will hold or even when it could open.’
