Queen's Wharf Brisbane
Project at a glance
A new world-class integrated resort development is being constructed that will put Brisbane on the map as a tourism, leisure and entertainment destination.
Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development covers more than 26 hectares of land and water, making up nearly 10% of the Brisbane CBD. The redevelopment will see the area transformed to include:
- 50 new restaurants, bars and cafes
- Four premium hotel brands - including The Ritz Carlton Brisbane and Brisbane's first 6 star hotel
- 12 football fields of public space
- A dazzling Sky Deck positioned 100 metres above ground and designed to offer 360-degree views of the river and city
- Three residential towers offering 2,000 residences
- Repurposed heritage buildings open to the public
- A new pedestrian bridge to South Bank (the Neville Bonner Bridge)
- High-end retail department store
- World-class casino and gaming facilities to replace the existing casino.
Expected to open in 2022, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will transform the Central Business District and river’s edge with an iconic design that embraces Brisbane’s inviting subtropical climate and celebrates the precinct’s Indigenous and European heritage with interpretive trails and experiences spanning the Brisbane River and ridgeline.
