Sunshine Station Masterplan and existing commitments

The State Government recently released the Sunshine Station Masterplan with $143 million of funding to deliver the first stage of infrastructure works, which is on top of works already committed as part of both the Sunshine Station Regional Platform project and Melbourne Airport Rail project.

Albion Station redevelopment

Located within the north of Sunshine CBD, Albion Station redevelopment is critical in uncloaking the surrounding Albion Quarter urban renewal precinct. The $80 million station redevelopment by the State Government will link Victoria University to Albion Station and to Sunshine Energy Park to create an innovation, education and jobs-focused precinct. This is expected to unlock over 2 billion worth of development investment around the station, with the potential for over 7,000 new jobs.

Sunshine Energy Park 

The transformation of Sunshine Energy Park promises to be a 54-hectare urban parkland next to the Sunshine CBD and Albion Quarter that is an environmental and cultural asset for the community long into the future.

The Closed Sunshine Landfills are now suitable to consider opportunities for recreation and community use after extensive rehabilitation works and aftercare management, which will continue into the future.

The Sunshine Energy Park Vision Plan includes proposed large-scale tree planting, solar farm, mountain bike trails and hilltop lookout, cycling and walking tracks, a sustainability hub, sports fields and stadium, playground and play spaces, and a large urban forest and wetland system.

Community consultation on the draft plan is taking place from late June to mid-August 2023.
