WE’RE BREATHING LIFE INTO ONE OF OUR CITY’S MOST HISTORICAL SITES BY BRINGING THE BEST OF BRISBANE TOGETHER. COME DOWN TO THE RIVERFRONT AND RE-IMAGINE THE WAY YOU EAT, DRINK, PLAY AND STAY.

HSW – for Brisbane, by Brisbane.

Opening in late 2018, Howard Smith Wharves will soon be Brisbane’s newest entertainment and lifestyle destination. Celebrating the site’s unique position beneath the Story Bridge, it’s city and river views add yet another cultural dimension to our lively inner city.

We’re creating a new riverside precinct loved by residents and visitors; a place to connect and celebrate the best of what Brisbane has to offer.

We’re bringing life back to the river – a reimagined green space dancing on the edge of the concrete jungle, the bright lights a beautiful backdrop for our vibrant new world. Howard Smith Wharves will be home to an expansive brewery, abundant green spaces and picnic areas, two unique indoor event spaces, a brand-new boutique hotel, overwater bar and a line-up of riverside restaurants.

We can’t wait to share it with you soon and celebrate the best of what Brisbane has to offer!
