The iconic Queens Wharf redevelopment is a major project in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD covering more than 26 hectares. The development is expected to include world-class hotels, restaurants, bars, gaming, outdoor public spaces and foreshore area including a new pedestrian bridge link to South Bank.
