Situated at what is arguably Brisbane’s finest intimate river front location, River Quay is set in the southern end of the world-class setting of South Bank, a lush, sub-tropical, 42-hectare urban oasis. From the sweeping green of the purpose-built outdoor amphitheatre to the thrilling Brisbane city skyline, nowhere else can you see experience Brisbane so spectacularly.
Designed by award-winning Brisbane architects Arkhefield and landscape architects Cardno S.P.L.A.T, River Quay blends into the picturesque beauty of the natural green landscape and the neighbouring Parklands, and provides a welcome escape from the bustling pace of the Brisbane city. Throughout the neighbouring South Bank Parklands visitors and residents can enjoy a swim in Australia’s only city beach, while enjoying the fabulous CBD and river views.
There are many experiences on offer, including a stroll through the South Bank Arbour, rainforest walks, picnic and barbecue areas, water features and a picturesque riverfront promenade on which to walk, run and cycle; all of which are free services to the community.

Well, fancy that!
In 1882 , South Bank was the central business district of Brisbane.
In 1893 , the floods came and forced the central business district to the northern side of the river – what is today Brisbane’s CBD.
