The complex’s acrylic surfaces are line-marked for soccer, touch football and a four-lane 80m running track. There are digital scoreboards at the northern and southern ends, which can operate together or independently.

With two levels of pay-on-exit car parking located directly beneath the field, the sports field has all bases covered.

All facilities in the sports field are available for hire.

QUT tennis courts

Tennis courts are just off Herston Road. Courts are available 7 days a week. Students, staff and the general public are welcome to make a reservation.

Exercise clinic and physiotherapy services

At our QUT Exercise Physiology Clinic, students from the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences treat patients from the community while supervised by accredited exercise physiologists. The clinic provides pre-exercise screenings and physical assessments in order to prescribe individualised, low-cost exercise plans in areas such as chronic disease management, wellbeing, injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Core Healthcare can also tailor physiotherapy programs for individuals or groups.
