Picnic French style on the shores of the Brisbane River


Prepare your palettes, channel your savoir faire, spread out the picnic blankets and cue the camembert on the shores of the Brisbane River when Hamilton Reach plays host to its second annual free community event ‘A Frenchy Affair’ on Sunday 21st October, 1pm to 4pm.

‘A Frenchy Affair’ has become a celebrated waterfront picnic where all manner of people and their pooches – including an Instagram celebrity French bulldog – will turn out for the styled–up riverside ‘picnic en masse’ in one of Brisbane’s most desirable riverside neighbourhoods.

Set on the grassy lawns of the Northshore Riverside Park, the family event will play host to hundreds of locals featuring local tastes, tunes, free caricatures and entertainment with a distinctly French flavour.

Sip French inspired cocktails at Northshore Harbour Cafe, partake in authentic French crepes by J’adore Les Crepes, explore gourmet cheeses from Le Fromage Yard and other Frenchy fare, enjoy free coffee, bring your dog and meet A Frenchy Affair’s official ambassador @Basil_the_French.

Before the event from 11am, the first 100 visitors will enjoy free French champagne in the penthouse of Frasers Property Australia’s newly completed Riverlight apartment building and be invited to collect a goodie bag and fill it with a host of French treats such as pastries, macarons, lollies, lemonade, iced tea and a picnic rug ready to picnic on the shores for ‘A Frenchy Affair’.

With construction completed and boasting enviable resident facilities including a pool and sundeck, gym, private function room and barbecue area, Riverlight offers a combination of stylish two and three bedroom apartments and limited penthouses priced from $462,500 to $1.795 million.

The residences are a superior lifestyle choice with over 1,700sqm of landscaped gardens and spaces to explore and apartments that offer premium views of the Brisbane River, Royal Queensland Golf Club and to the Gateway Bridge and Brisbane CBD.

The Hamilton Reach Sales and Display Centre is open every day from 10am until 5pm at 310 MacArthur Avenue, Hamilton.
