Opening in January 2012, the 300-bed Southern Queensland Correctional Centre (SQCC), located near Gatton in the Lockyer Valley, is the State's newest prison. SQCC is the first completed stage of the Southern Queensland Correctional Precinct.
Serco Australia Pty Ltd is contracted to manage and operate the centre for QCS.
The centre provides secure placement accommodation for sentenced mainstream male prisoners classified as high or low security and has 104 secure and 196 residential beds.
The high proportion of residential style accommodation at the prison makes it suited to prisoners who have either completed their intervention and rehabilitation programs or who are close to being eligible for parole.
The prison will also include accommodation for aged and infirm prisoners in a residential unit and a medical centre providing palliative care.
