Declared in 2008, the 15.6-hectare Queensland Children's Hospital State Development Area (SDA) was established to facilitate the delivery of a hospital and associated infrastructure.

Adjacent to Brisbane's existing Mater Children's Hospital, the area includes development of the Lady Cilento Children's hospital, the Centre for Children's Health and Research, associated infrastructure and an education precinct (to be used by Somerville House and St Laurence's College).
