HSW Pontoon


The Landing at Howard Smith Wharves is a new pontoon enabling arrivals to HSW via the Brisbane River.

Arrival and departure bookings are for a duration of 15 minutes unless otherwise requested and agreed by HSW.

A separate booking must be made for each arrival and departure for example if you are arriving at 1pm and departing at 3pm, you will require two reservations for those times.

The pontoon can only cater for vessels up to 24m, and no more than 50 passengers (including boat crew) can embark/disembark from each vessel.

During the booking process, you must confirm that you have read and understood the Operations & Management Plan.

Please download a copy of the plan here.
