The new home of innovation, culture and community

Entertainment

Northshore Brisbane has cemented its credentials as one of the river city’s new entertainment precincts, recently hosting a slate of Brisbane festival events in September.

Thousands of people visited over the 22-day festival to immerse themselves, connect, be inspired, and enjoy the river as a stage for captivating art, music, conversation, and events. 

As the largest waterfront urban renewal project in Queensland, the burgeoning site will be transformed over the next 30 years, from an old wharf into a hive of activity. 

Northshore Precinct Manager Wendy Brewster said “The redeveloped premier waterfront destination would be  home to dining and retail outlets and a program of events and entertainment sure to surprise and delight residents  and visitors.”

“The secret is out with more and more families enjoying the well-equipped Hercules Street Park, locals using the walking tracks and beach area, and visitors soaking up the incredible river views,” Wendy said.

“Event organisers are also drawn to the central location, versatile spaces, accessibility, amenities, easy parking and public transport options and nearby attractions such as Portside and Eat Street.”

Brisbane Festival’s decision to program premiere productions at Northshore Brisbane follows the success of two other major events: the Day For It Festival in April and The Winter Village from June to August.
