Interaction with the river

In keeping with Brisbane City Council’s “River’s Edge” strategy, Howard Smith Wharves will be a place to engage with the river, with fun, water-based activities, stages for entertainment, dining and berthing facilities.

Brisbane City Council completed construction of the restoration of the 170 metre long timber wharf beneath the Story Bridge in March 2013.

The restoration included structural repairs which make the area safe for public access and captures the site’s history as a working wharf.

HSW is focussed on the completing the current development, but has also allowed for the future installation of  a ferry terminal and marina.
