The River’s Edge Strategy Public Realm Study was developed by Urbis to inform the River’s Edge Strategy and to assist the river in reaching its full potential and serve as a recreation and tourism/destination within Brisbane.

The Public Realm Study was organised around the themes of “the river as a place”, “the river as a playground” and “the river as a connector”.

The study promoted the places and spaces along the riverfront as destinations for leisure and entertainment and elevated the river’s role for movement around Brisbane’s inner city and as a cultural destination in its own right.

The Brisbane river is the defining element of the city. It has helped to shape the CBD and inner city suburbs over the years and provides a great opportunity to develop a truly unique public realm experience within Brisbane at the river’s edge.
