Brisbane Airport, along with Green Beacon Brewing Company and Golf Central, have announced a new partnership, launching a unique entertainment destination called Landers Pocket.

The venue will be a multi-faceted entertainment and sports precinct, unlike other establishments in Queensland, and will provide a unique consumer experience for thousands of travellers and visitors each week.

“Brisbane Airport is thrilled to welcome this exciting development. It promises to provide travellers with a unique and memorable destination at BNE, while also becoming a landmark venue for Brisbane residents,” according to Martin Ryan, Executive General Manager Commercial at Brisbane Airport. 

“In 2025, this will be the newest venue for Brisbane to experience, injecting jobs and vibrancy into the Skygate precinct of the airport.” 

The naming of Landers Pocket is a nice nod to history and the market garden that occupied part of the airport site a century ago.” 

Green Beacon will run the brewery and distillery, which will complement an 800-person capacity hospitality offering operated by Golf Central.  

The existing state-of-the-art golf driving range will double in size and include ball tracking in every bay. 

Offering a second mini golf course, padel tennis courts, multiple function and event spaces, a beer garden, and an outdoor amphitheater, this new development will offer something for everyone to enjoy.  

Richard Shrosbery, General Manager of Green Beacon Brewing Company, said: “This announcement is unbelievably exciting for Green Beacon. The new brewery and hospitality venue will ensure we get our award-winning beers into the hands of more beer lovers than ever before.

“Green Beacon has been a part of the Brisbane community at Teneriffe for over a decade, and this expansion will be a huge springboard for our brand. We want to bring people together to connect, talk, laugh and have fun – and we believe this new precinct will enable that.  

“This will also create dozens of job opportunities for the area. The team here are thrilled to be a part of this broader leisure precinct at Landers Pocket, right here in our home of Brisbane.”  

James Cooper, Managing Director at Golf Central, said, “Golf Central has always been at the forefront of golf innovation, and Landers Pocket will deliver a re-imagined golf and entertainment experience to our local, interstate, and international golfers.  

“There will be something for everyone and we can’t wait for this next stage of our evolution to open in early 2025.” 

Established in Brisbane in 2013, the partnership agreement with Golf Central will create a brand experience that solidifies Green Beacon as one of the top craft beers in the Sunshine State and Golf Central as one of the premier golf entertainment facilities in the country.
