Neville Bonner Bridge

Neville Bonner Bridge

Named in honour of the late Indigenous Senator Neville Bonner AO, the Neville Bonner Bridge will link both sides of the Brisbane River, forming a stronger connection between the popular South Bank arts and cultural precinct and the future Queen’s Wharf Brisbane precinct.

The Neville Bonner Bridge will be a focal icon for the development, adding to Brisbane’s collection of unique bridges and enabling greater connectivity for both locals and visitors. Connecting South Bank and Queen’s Wharf Brisbane via a Grimshaw beautifully designed pedestrian bridge will further enhance the connectivity of Brisbane’s CBD and its key surrounding features.
