Brisbane’s own ‘Fisherman’s Wharf’

Improving river access, emphasising our heritage and revitalising Brisbane’s riverfront are the main goals of Brisbane City Council’s draft City Reach Waterfront Master Plan, reports


The 1.2km stretch from the City Botanic Garden through to Howard Smith Wharves is under review with the plans focusing on green spaces and trees, decorative lighting, public art, highlighting heritage features and increasing the width of the promenade.


Inspiration for the plan has been drawn from 22 waterfronts around the world including Singapore’s Marina Bay, Aker Brygge Harbourfront in Oslo, and Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.


City Planning Chair Matthew Bourke said the plan is vital to ensuring the waterfront continue to be a “world class” precinct for lifestyle and employment. 


“Extending the range of activities beyond dining allows residents and visitors to make the most of our incredible climate and enviable outdoor lifestyle, while activating the underused spaces along this iconic pathway.


“We’re excited to incorporate the best ideas into this project to ensure this area remains a great, family-friendly destination now and into the future, said Mr Bourke. reports that following a community study, respondents indicated they thought the current area was “crowded and too narrow” and there was a greater need for more community space in the precinct. 


The draft plan is open to the residents to have their say until the 9thDecember.  Visit artist impressions and full copy of the draft plan.
