New Queenstown Ambulance Station set to open
The new Queenstown Ambulance Station is nearing completion and set to open in the coming weeks.
The final works on the new $2.67 million Queenstown Ambulance Station, built by local firm Stubbs Construction, are due to be completed next month.
The station is one of six new rural and regional ambulance stations we are delivering around the state, funded through the Statewide Rural Hospital and Ambulance Station Fund.
The new two-bay ambulance station at Queenstown boasts improved infection control measures, provides training room facilities for paramedics and volunteers to further advance their skills, will help Ambulance Tasmania’s call-out response, and improve the general amenity for all users.

The new station will replace the existing site, which is located at a residential house in Queenstown.
Once complete, the new Queenstown station will be the third of six rural and regional ambulance stations to be delivered. Construction at the new Beaconsfield station was recently completed, and the new Bridgewater station was completed in May 2023.
Tenders have also been called for the new Oatlands Ambulance Station, with construction on that project expected to begin in 2024.
A development application for the Bicheno ambulance station has recently been approved by the local council, with the Department of Health now conducting further consultation with key stakeholders over the next four weeks.
Planning and design for the new Longford ambulance station is currently underway.
