Australia Post is committing more than $50 million to build the second largest parcel facility in Queensland, with it being slated to open in early 2026.

The facility will be at Brisbane Airport Industrial Park, catering to south-east Queensland’s increasing population.

“Queensland continues to experience year-on-year e-commerce growth, with 82 per cent of Queenslanders making an online purchase in the past year,” says Paul Graham, Australia Post Group CEO and Managing Director.

“This new parcel facility will help us respond to that demand and deliver parcels to customers’ doors sooner. The Brisbane North Parcel Facility will not only increase our operational footprint but will also complement our modernisation and regional capacity network program, with 39 network operations sites upgraded in the past 12 months.”

Paul notes with South East Queensland’s population expected to increase to more than six million by 2023, this strategic investment will ensure the Australia Post Group1 has the right infrastructure in place to meet the projected e-commerce growth across the region.

During the unveiling of the new site at the Brisbane Airport Industrial Park. He notes the construction of the new facility highlighted Australia Post’s commitment to investing in infrastructure that supports the changing needs of its customers and the growth of its business.

“Not only do we offer direct tarmac access, but Brisbane’s arterial road network is right on our doorstep,” adds Paul. “We’re proud to develop projects that enable Queensland to grow and connect to the world.”

Setting a new standard for sustainability, the 33,600 sqm Brisbane North Parcel facility will be 5-Star Green Star accredited. Australia Post will also work alongside the Australian Border Force and the Department of Agriculture Fisheries & Forestry at the Brisbane North Parcel facility as an International Gateway Operation.
