The Southern Queensland Correctional Precinct is a two stage expansion and upgrade project.

Stage Two will involve the construction of a new 1,004 cell, high security facility for male prisoners in Gatton, in order to address growing demand for correctional facilities in Queensland over the next 3-5 years.

Building Queensland (BQ) identified the Southern Queensland Correctional Precinct (Stage 2) as a priority project in their Infrastructure Pipeline Report, released December 2016.


BQ assisted with business case, which was completed in late 2017. The business case is awaiting review by the Queensland Government and has since been combined with the business case for Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre expansion.

The new prison will enhance the already complete Stage 1 of the precinct - Southern Queensland Correctional Centre - a 300 bed minimum to maximum security prison for men located in the Lockyer Valley, 15 kilometres north of Gatton.

The Southern Queensland Correctional Centre run by Serco, was opened in December 2011. The Queensland Correctional Services is re-tendering the operations and management of the centre, with the request for expressions of interests closing in January 2018.
