UQ VETS Dayboro Site: Expression of interest (EOI) for sale/lease

Dayboro is a thriving rural community located approximately one hour's drive north of Brisbane. The village is a hub for the region, including the localities of Ocean View, Mount Mee, Mount Pleasant and Laceys Creek.  

The University of Queensland (UQ) has been a part of the Dayboro community since taking over operation of the Dayboro Veterinary Surgery in 1987. In May 2022, UQ announced that following extended consultation with staff and the community, the difficult decision was made to cease operation of UQ VETS Dayboro, with UQ’s veterinary teaching to be consolidated at the Gatton campus. The decision was not made lightly and UQ is genuinely committed to supporting staff, students and our valued customers through this process.

The open market ‘expression of interest’ (EOI) process for sale/lease of the clinic has closed.

The University of Queensland (UQ) has begun commercial discussions to progress towards a final outcome.

While this process is ongoing, UQ will continue to operate the clinic and support the staff to provide care for the animals in our community.

We acknowledge the commitment and patience of our staff, clients and community while we work through this process.
