Brisbane Festival in association with Channel Nine and Triple M present

Sunsuper Riverfire

26 Sep
South Bank - All Areas

Sunsuper Riverfire is Brisbane’s night of nights.

A perfect way to celebrate the final night of three weeks of a mind-blowing Brisbane Festival.

The night sky is our final canvas.

Sunsuper Riverfire ignites the skyline with a pyrotechnic extravaganza set to an almighty soundtrack of the year's biggest songs and heart-pumping classics.

This is one of the most technically challenging and electrifying fireworks displays in Australia from Foti International. Fired from multiple bridges, barges and city rooftops, spectators are also treated to aerobatics from the Australian Defence Force with displays by Super Hornets and helicopters.*

For this explosive Festival finale, crowds can tune into Triple M’s live broadcast or Channel Nine’s exclusive television coverage from 6.30pm.
