River Quay

A welcome escape from the bustling pace of Brisbane’s CBD, River Quay's picturesque beauty isn’t the only thing that sets this precinct apart; adorning the river’s edge are five of Brisbane’s premiere dining destinations, who continue on South Bank’s long history of agricultural integrity. Stokehouse Q, Aquitaine Brasserie, Popolo Italian Kitchen and Bar, The Jetty, and Cove Bar + Dining complete the riverfront experience, each offering up their own distinctive cuisine style while all sharing a passion for and focus on the local food community. Each River Quay restaurant aims to source local produce and encourage sustainability in their practices to further the love of food in the local community.

The River Quay Green is constantly celebrated as an unsurpassable destination for riverfront events in Brisbane’s cultural heart, which is why it has also played host to many events including Regional Flavours, Brisbane Festival, and Sunday Sessions on the Green. From the sweeping green of the outdoor amphitheatre to the stunning Brisbane skyline, there’s nowhere else in Brisbane that you can appreciate its natural vistas so magnificently.

Note: River Quay Green is a wet licensed area, meaning you can consume alcohol there between 10am and 8pm daily. Please note however, that to consume alcohol at South Bank, you must be 18+, drink responsibly, and you must have food to accompany your drinks.

South Bank Corporation recognises the traditional owners of the lands at South Bank, the Turrbal and Yuggera people. We also pay our respects to their elders, past and present, and the elders from other communities who visit from time to time
