River Plaza Apartments is situated on a rare north facing waterfront location. We have views of the Brisbane River and the Riverside Express Way, South Bank Parklands, Brisbane CBD, Kangaroo Point Cliffs and the Story Bridge.

Guests staying at River Plaza find this unique location so amazingly convenient. River Plaza is a short walk to South Bank where you will find a huge selection of cosmopolitan dining and alfresco cafes.

The Cultural Precinct is located at the northern end of South Bank. You can go to a show at the Queensland Performing Arts, view world class exhibitions at the Queensland Art Gallery & the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA). South Bank is also home for The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, the State Library and the Queensland Museum and Science centre.

The lush tropical surrounds of South Bank boasts a 1 kilometre bougainvillea-lined arbour and you can get the best views from the Wheel of Brisbane. Go for a swim at the Streets Beach which was man made and has life savers on duty.

Public transport - buses, trains and the famous Brisbane River City-Cats are all conveniently located at South Bank and all have very regular arrivals and departures.

The Brisbane CBD is just a short stroll across the Goodwill Bridge or you can catch the free City Hopper Ferry which services North Quay (the stop for the Queen St Mall and the Brisbane Casino), South Bank, Maritime Museum (our stop) Thornton St (for Kangaroo Point) and Eagle Street Pier which boasts award winning restaurants and close up views of the Story Bridge.

The City Cycle has a station across the road from River Plaza Apartments. What a great way to explore the Inner City suburbs. There are extensive cycle paths running throughout the city and for a small fee you can enjoy the outdoors by biking around town.

A wonderful walking and cycling track winds along the river bank past the Kangaroo Point cliffs and continues right under the Story Bridge and around to Dockside.

The Goodwill Bridge (pedestrians & cyclists access only) will take you past the Riverstage where regular concerts are held and into the Botanic Gardens. From here you can divert to the inner city or follow the river walk around to Eagle Street pier and beyond.

The Mater Private Hospital and the new Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital is less then 3 mins walk away.

The Suncorp Stadium is also easily accessible by catching the train from South Bank Station to the Roma Street Station, only two stops away, and it’s free with your Stadium event ticket. The “Gabba” is only a stones throw away.
