NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

When the Redcliffe City Council made re-claimed land available for sporting fields, the Redcliffe Dolphins RLC club applied for the maximum land available. Council engineer Kevin Tibbets took construction of the playing fields and mounds with the utmost enthusiasm and co-operated with the club 100 percent in their desire to make it a showpiece for Rugby League.

 

 

Before the official opening match in May 1979 against Norths, finances were stretched to the limit. Power, sewerage, lighting and the building of suitable dressing rooms and public toilet facilities had to be undertaken. To appreciate the additional costs, it has to be remembered this was an isolated area at the time of construction. Normal services had to be brought in. With no gravity flow from Klingner Road expensive pumps had to be acquired, power for floodlighting had to go underground to the main oval and the run through tunnel from the dressing rooms to the main field was shipped from Western Australia, which cost $9000. That was still cheaper than anything available from the eastern states.

 

 

The transition of moving to Dolphin Oval from the Redcliffe Showgrounds for training purposes in the early 1980ís presented some initial problems. The lights at the showgrounds were superior to those on the new fields and the Club administration and licensed club was still located at the showgrounds. Pressure to build a licensed club at Dolphin Oval was mounting, but to leave the old club which was a financially viable operation and go into large debt had to be met with a great deal of caution. The club made the move to Dolphin Oval in 1985 with the help Federal Government.

 

The ground has hosted four NRL trials, three Queensland Cup grand finals and an Australia vs New Zealand schoolboys test match as well as an international masters tournament and away from Rugby League a rock concert and a rodeo. While at different stages the ground has been home to the Redcliffe Rugby and Baseball clubs.
