Where is it: Brisbane River as it passes through Brisbane's CBD What's it all about: Riverfire is a spectacular fireworks finale to the Brisbane Festival!
How can I join in: Get in early to find a spot, sit back, and wait for the action! There are vantage points all through the CBD, South Bank and Kangaroo Point. If you don't want to brave the crowds, there a heaps of restaurants and bars that have special functions for Riverfire. Also, have a look at the website for spots in the suburbs where you can see the fireworks!
Tell me more: If you're new to Brisbane or maybe just visiting - Riverfire is one event not too be missed! All Brisbane locals know this event - a fireworks extravaganza which wraps up the Brisbane Festival. And not just fireworks either - some awesome fly pasts and displays of military might from the Royal Australian Air Force with Super Hornets and helicopters! Be sure to get in early to secure your spot (South Bank is a great spot) as it is a hugely popular event, but braving the crowds is definitely worth it, as the 20 minute fireworks display is truly amazing!
