Queensland Minecraft

Queensland has its very own Minecraft servers!

State Library of Queensland has setup 2 servers, one for PC/Mac (Java) and one for tablets (Pocket/Bedrock). We have created several worlds within these servers for players to challenge each other or just to be creative from our Maze Runner world, to building the Ultimate Treehouse, or even contributing to our Virtual City.

  2. There are some permission issues that are currently being worked on
  3. There is a port change to port 25565. You may need to update your saved server settings

FAQs

How do I connect to the server?
First, you need to register here. Then once approved, we will send you the server details. If you have lost this email, the server information is above.

I tried to chat to another player but can't?
Chat is disabled unless there is a moderator online.

I can’t see or chat to players on the other server?
The 2 servers run separately and are not connected. If you want to work together, then you need to be all on the same server.

I tried to build a RedStone machine and it didn’t work?
RedStone doesn’t work on private servers at this stage

I built something cool, but someone destroyed it
We are so sorry to hear this. As much as we try to police this, we can’t be everywhere at once. If you see someone doing this, it is against the rules. Please let us know and we will look at jailing the player.

I registered but was told I wasn’t allowed to?
We try to let anyone in Queensland and has a Public Library membership to play on our servers, but we have some responsibility to ensure that it is a safe environment for the players.

First in your registration, you need to make sure you filled out all the required fields and verify that you are you. This is usually done by a phone call from us. If you are under 18, then we need to talk to your parents first!

We also need to make sure your contact information is valid, so that if you break the rules, we know who to contact.

Requesting your Own World

Public Libraries within Queensland can request worlds added to run activities. If you would like a world created specifically for your program, please send us an email at ic@slq.qld.gov.au.
