Stadium, housing proposed for Hobarts waterfront

The Tasmanian government has released preliminary documents in its plans to create an arts, entertainment and sporting precinct at Macquarie Point in Hobart.

In April 2023, the federal government announced it would contribute $240 million towards the project, which will transform the last remaining waterfront and urban development site in Hobart.

The Tasmanian government will develop a refreshed precinct plan for the area, which spans from Macquarie Point to crown land at Regatta Point.

A multipurpose, 23,000-seat stadium will be the centrepiece of the project. It will have the capacity to host a range of activities such as major concerts, conferences, exhibitions and sporting events.

"The Urban Renewal project has a multipurpose stadium at its core, which will inspire economic activity around it and strengthen our economy for decades to come," said Tasmanian premier Jeremy Rockliff.

The project will include a focus on transport connections, housing and upgrade to Hobart port.

Regatta Point will be developed through a public-private partnership and include affordable homes and housing for critical workers and veterans.
