Riverside Revitalisation

The Riverside Revitalisation transforms the upper and lower bank of Rockhampton's iconic Fitzroy River into a mixed use space and recreational hub for businesses, locals and visitors. Featuring a fully reconstructed Quay Street, pier structure with restaurant facilities, wet play area and state-of-the-art children's playground, revitalised gardens and shaded amphitheatre, the area will activate the central CBD and become a place for regular events and festivals.

The Riverbank Revitalisation extends along the upper and lower banks of the Fitzroy River parallel to Quay Street between Fitzroy and William Streets, and Denham Street up to East Street. The project was jointly funded by the Australian Government ($7 million), the Queensland Government ($15 million) and the Rockhampton Regional Council ($14 million) and has received an Excellence in Urban Design commendation in the Queensland Government’s Award for Urban Design 2018.
