About the project

Construction of the facility started in January 2020 and was completed in June 2020. Council thanks the community for their patience while these works were being completed.

The facility has been developed and branded with a similar look-and-feel as Council's other recently completed on-water facilities as part of the River Access Network.

The Riverhills Recreation Hub provides an additional river access point for this popular recreation area and facilitates a range of vessels and uses including:

  • launching and short term use of passive crafts such as kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddleboards
  • short term use for recreation vessels
  • pick up and drop off for commercial vessels up to 25 tonnes
  • a rest point or destination within a network of other public pontoons.

Fishing activities will be allowed on the pontoon, however boating and passive craft activity take priority.

Using the new facility

Council has installed signage onsite to ensure users are able to familiarise themselves with safe on-water conduct before using the facility. Council encourages all users to also familiarise themselves with the Brisbane River Code of Conduct and the Brisbane RiverShare pocket guide for further information on how to safely use the river. These guides are available on the Queensland Government's Maritime Safety Queensland website.
