CityCat and ferry services
Stage three of Council’s three-stage plan to reinstate ferry services will commence Thursday 19 May 2022, reconnecting CityCat services to available terminals, subject to weather and river conditions. These include West End, Guyatt Park, South Bank, Riverside, Mowbray Park, New Farm Park, Hawthorne, Bulimba, Teneriffe, Bretts Wharf, Apollo Road and Northshore Hamilton. Services will continue to be expanded as terminals are restored following the February 2022 flood event and the more recent weather event in May 2022.
CityHopper services will recommence between South Bank, Riverside and Howard Smith Wharves. The Bulimba to Teneriffe Cross River service will continue to operate on a revised 15-minute frequency.
The temporary Guyatt Park to West End cross river and Hawthorne Cross River services will cease, with the reinstatement of these ferry services

Parks and natural areas
The recent severe weather events have impacted many of Brisbane's parks and natural areas.
All but one of the 2180 parks are open to the public, with Cactoblastis Corner in Sherwood temporarily closed due to landslip issues, however, Council has temporarily closed some facilities within impacted parks, including, but not limited to, playgrounds, toilets, barbecues, fitness equipment and skate parks.
Council has signed temporarily closed facilities within parks and natural areas to ensure the safety of visitors. While parks and natural areas are now open, Council reminds park users that changed conditions due to flooding may still apply and advises park visitors to take extra caution as required.
Council is working hard to ensure our highest-use parks and natural areas are back to full working order as soon as possible.
