Riverfire Fireworks Celebrations – Best vantage points

Riverfire is on Saturday, 28th September this year and is always a much-loved community event which has been safely taking place across Brisbane’s skies for 21 years.

The major fireworks display marks the end of the Brisbane festival each year and attracts hundreds of thousands of spectators from all over South-East Queensland.   With months of preparation prior to the event and with the help of the Queensland Police, Water Police and key public agencies, you can be assured the event will be safe for all patrons to enjoy.

This event is one of the most electrifying fireworks displays in Australia which can be viewed from multiple bridges, barges, city rooftops and some suburban streets and there’s no better time of year to go out at night in Brisbane than our September nights.  So, get your family, friends and co-workers together, bring a blanket and sick back and enjoy one of Brisbane’s most iconic events.

If you’re not keen on dressing up or fighting with the crowds, then there are plenty of local areas to see the fireworks and there’s no need to dress up – slippers, tracksuits, and PJ’s for the kids are all suitable attire for these family friendly viewing points in the suburbs:
