New Carina Leagues Club Lounge, opening late 2024.

Carina Leagues Club has announced it will invest $15 million to renovate the clubhouse and transform it into an entertainment destination for the local community.

“We love our local community, and we’re excited this renovation is going to build a state-of-the-art food and beverage, gaming, and entertainment space, right in their backyard,” said Carina Leagues Club general manager Adam Wiencke.

“Community is at the heart of what we do here, so it was important we prioritised families, friends and locals when designing the renovations.”

Under the plans, the renovations will be carried out over a number of stages with the help of construction firm Ashley Cooper Construction.

Stage one, which is now in progress, will include the addition of a new 200-person function centre, a new Arties luxury Island bar, and a refreshed kitchen and Italian dome pizza oven.

Carina Leagues Club new Function Centre will house up to 200 people.

The existing Hive Cafe will also be expanded with a new deck so it can seat over 150 people at any one time.

Similarly, the existing kids’ area Playland will receive a facelift, which will include the addition of three kids’ party rooms and a 40 per cent size increase.

“On top of those upgrades, we are also enhancing the workplace environment for our employees with upgraded staff rooms, offices and boardrooms,” Wiencke said.

During the renovation period, Carina Leagues Club will remain fully operational.

Stage one of the renovations is expected to be completed by mid-September and all works by Christmas this year, with minimal disruption to club operations. The next renovations stages will kick off in 2025.

Wiencke believes the renovations will help futureproof the club to ensure it remains part of the community.  

“It’s no secret large corporate developments, such as Queen’s Wharf, coupled with the rising cost of living, have made it even more important for local clubs like ours to adapt to our community’s needs,” he said.

Carina Leagues Club was recently crowned Large Club of the Year by Clubs Queensland. It currently has over 30,000 active members.
