The project

Unlocking North Queensland’s clean energy potential.

Windlab is developing the North Queensland Super Hub – a major clean energy precinct centred around Hughenden, 380km south-west of Townsville.

The North Queensland Super Hub will deliver more than 10GW of wind and solar energy.

The first projects are the 800MW Prairie Wind Farm and the 1.4GW Wongalee Wind Farm currently in detailed planning and with land agreements in place.

Construction on Prairie and Wongalee is expected to commence in 2025 with the projects producing power by 2027.


The location

The heart of Queensland’s renewable energy opportunity.

The North Queensland Super Hub is being developed on pastoral land around Hughenden in partnership with landowners, Traditional Owners, community members and other stakeholders.

The region is home to a high-yield, complimentary wind and solar resource and is ideally suited for multiple offtake opportunities. Renewable energy projects are also highly compatible with the existing use of the land as grazing country for livestock.
