City of Yarrabilba
Yarrabilba is a locality of Logan City in Queensland (post code 4207) in the 2016 census, Yarrabilba had a population of just 3580 however, this number has dramatically increased in the years since.
It was announced in 2010 that Yarrabilba – which in the Wangerriburra/Bundjalung language means ‘Place of song‘ – would be the location for a future city which is planned to include 20 000 dwellings which would house up to 50 000 people.
Development on the new urban precinct began in 2011 after Lend Lease was granted approval for the development of the first 93.2 hectare stage of the project.
Initial planning for a cricket club in the area began in early February 2019, which included a number of meetings with community projects, partnerships and engagement personnel acting on behalf of developer Lend Lease, obtaining support from Queensland Cricket, initiation discussions with Logan City Council and meetings to discuss strategic planning with staff from Queensland Cricket including Game Development Officers for the region.
