Road Bridge & River Closures

Sunsuper Riverfire Road, Bridge and River Closures

Road, bridge and river closures will be in place for Sunsuper Riverfire - Brisbane Festival apologise for any inconvenience these closures may cause.

On Saturday 28 September 2019, close to half a million people will converge on The City, South Brisbane, Kangaroo Point and Fortitude Valley precincts to watch the city sky light up as fireworks set to a music soundtrack broadcast on Triple M, erupt from many launch sites across the Town and South Brisbane Reaches of the Brisbane River.  Sunsuper Riverfire returns to mark the end of Brisbane Festival's 2019 program for another year. Sunsuper Riverfire unites the city like no other event, as hundreds of thousands of people gather along the banks of the Town and South Brisbane Reaches of the Brisbane River, to view one of Australia’s largest annual fireworks displays. 

Road closures will be listed here closer to the event.
