Stage 1 Open Howard Smith Wharves

Stage 1 of HSW is now open!

Yes, you read that right. We’re starting to open our venues this month!

It’s been a long time in the making, and we’re excited to say that you can now visit Howard Smith Wharves and experience the new lifestyle and entertainment precinct for yourself!

On 13 November Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Cr Vicki Howard joined Howard Smith Wharves CEO Luke Fraser and Founder Adam Flaskas in the first lift ride to officially open stage 1 of the Howard Smith Wharves progressive opening.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the lifestyle and leisure precinct would create more to see and do, completing the missing link along the inner city reaches of the Brisbane River.

“For many years the heritage-listed wharf buildings have been closed to the public, however, thanks to a three-year restoration project, the precinct has been reimagined into a vibrant lifestyle precinct for both residents and tourists,” Cr Quirk said.

The first phase of venue openings includes the Rivershed event space, Howard’s Hall, Felons Brewing Co., Mr Percival’s, the Main and East Lawns and single lift from Bowen Terrace near Wilson’s Outlook. Here’s what you have to look forward to this month:
