Australia Day at South Bank

South Bank Parkland’s River Quay Green came to life on 26 January as crowds gathered to celebrate Australia Day with family and friends.


Revellers came together to enjoy the toe-tapping tunes of some of Queensland’s best home-grown musical talent, set against the backdrop of the Brisbane city skyline. Live performances by Andrea Kirwin, The Fergies, Bearfoot and Hollow Coves provided the perfect soundtrack to kick back, relax and soak up the sunshine.


The fun-filled day was capped off by a spectacular fireworks display over the Brisbane River.


Australia Day at South Bank was presented by Brisbane Marketing in partnership with the Queensland Government and the National Australia Day Council, and proudly supported by The Weekend Edition.
