I have just had a look on the brisbane airport corporation april time table it shows that Indonesia airasia x fly to brisbane daily. They land at 11:55pm and depart at 1:10am. The route is DPS-BNE and BNE-DPS. The filght number is XT990 and XT991. Has anyone else heard or seen about this??? It isn't on there booking website

No, it's new and I think it's a big mistake that BAC have published it.
My guess is Air Asia have booked that slot but have not yet announced the start date or even the route yet. It's clearly an error when it's a daily flight and the airline planning only 5x weekly services from Melbourne, a much bigger airport.
If they do start flights it won't be nice in a 9 abreast A330 at all hours of the night.

It would be a very game / adventurous / probably stupid move for an airline to start up a completely new route with less than a month to gain bookings. Yes, afloskar, you are correct - there is no mention whatsoever of this route on the Air Asia X website, there is no timetable information on a planned new route, there is no promotional pricing to start the route up and attract bookings .. and there is absolutely no reference to Brisbane (BNE) as an available destination on either their booking page or route map.
I'd suggest henrus is entirely correct in the assumption of BNE Airport management jumping the gun. The only point I would disagree with is the BNE vs MEL comparison. BITRE data shows that BNE is now neck & neck with MEL. The true issue here though is that Air Asia X does serve that pesky Gold Coast airport just down the road. Perhaps AAx didn't notice how close the two airports are LOL ? Personally, I wouldn't be packing any luggage for travel out of BNE on Air Asia X in April 2016.
Ok thanks guys
