About The Stadium

Queensland Country Bank Stadium is a centrally located, 25,000 seat, best-practice, multi-purpose regional stadium in Townsville.

The Stadium is a joint project of the Queensland Government, Australian Government and Townsville City Council and is supported by the National Rugby League (NRL) and North Queensland Cowboys. The stadium forms part of the Townsville City Deal that was signed in December 2016.

Queensland Country Bank Stadium owned and operated by Stadiums Queensland.


Venue Design


Queensland Country Bank Stadium's design embraces the project’s vision to attract visitors and investment, celebrate Townsville's climate, value the water edge environment, deliver high quality public spaces and support urban regeneration.

The stadium features generous plazas and landscaped green spaces. The grassed northern green and plaza forms part of the northern entry and can provide a space for friends and family to meet before watching the event!

The horseshoe-shaped, cantilever roof inspired by the tropical pandanus plant provides an elegant expression of the building while shading about 75% of the seating, with generous overhangs over the concourse and main entry.

The modern look and feel of the stadium has been enhanced by incorporating the sports lighting into the stand roofing, eliminating the need for light towers. On the sweeping 9m wide concourse patrons will be able to walk the full 600m circumference of the stadium without the use of stairs and be able to take in views to the field of play.
