Public spaces and walks

Queen’s Wharf Brisbane offers an exciting new urban playground in the CBD.

Inviting public spaces and walks throughout Queen’s Wharf Brisbane have been designed to embrace the city’s amazing subtropical weather and outdoor lifestyle.

Twelve football fields of public space in the precinct will support a range of outdoor activities such as kayaking, cycling and running routes. The precinct will provide flexibility in offering individual spaces to enjoy, as well as larger areas that can support major events and festivals.

Public spaces include:

  • The iconic signature Sky Deck will be open to the public, positioned 100 metres above William Street and has been designed to offer spectacular 360-degree views of the river and city.
  • A combined total of seven parks, courtyards and public spaces including the existing Queens Gardens and Miller Park; and the future Waterline Park, the Undercurrent Village, Queen’s Wharf Plaza, The Landing and Bellevue Place.
  • Three laneways including the newly repurposed Stephens Lane, Harris Terrace Lane and The Mansions.
  • A subtropical pedestrian-friendly boulevard along William Street that provides an interesting area for people to walk, complete with subtropical plantings and views and new connections to Queens Wharf Road and the river.
  • A rooftop outdoor performance area and cinema.
  • Mangrove Walk with interpretive heritage and integrated story‑telling elements that will also provide an alternative path from the Botanic Gardens to Queen’s Wharf Plaza and Queens Wharf Road.
  • Upgraded Bicentennial Bikeway that includes a combination of shared and separated areas.
