In 2004-05 the department worked on numerous projects for the state. Work progressed on the Boggo Road Precinct Redevelopment in Brisbane to turn the former gaol site and surrounding area at Dutton Park into a research, business, commercial and residential precinct.
A $10 million refurbishment of stage one of the Cairns Convention Centre was completed, enabling the centre to maintain a strong position in the highly competitive national and international convention market.
Completion of the $5 million Palm Island Community Youth Centre gave the community a real boost by providing a safe place where people of all ages could go to have fun and get involved in activities, including the use of the Internet.
