Facelift for The Hub at Caboolture

Posted: 6am 17 Dec 2020

A new gallery shop, extended library workroom and improved security are part of a significant upgrade for The Caboolture Hub.

The $370,000 upgrade will be completed over summer, ready for an invigorated events calendar at The Hub in 2021.

Moreton Bay Region Mayor Peter Flannery says the revamp will attract businesses and creative minds.

“These renovations will create an inviting and sophisticated entrance to the art gallery and library within The Hub precinct,” Mayor Flannery says.

Temporary closure

“To complete these works, the gallery will be temporarily closed from 8 February to 16 April 2021.

“But when that space reopens, locals and visitors alike will be welcomed back with a line-up of new events, exhibitions and workshops.”

Councillor Adam Hain (Div 3) says The Hub is a celebration of local arts and culture, and the renovations are an important investment in community vibrancy.

“Caboolture is already one of the fastest growing regions in Queensland and once Caboolture West comes online this place will be pumping,” he says.

Taking it to the next level

“Investment in our public spaces is critical, especially The Hub, where you’re able to do everything from reading, researching and viewing art, through to hosting major business events.”

Cr Hain says the library will remain open during the renovations.

“I’m excited to see how these upgrades take The Hub precinct to a new level.”

Construction is scheduled to be completed by April 2021.
