Queen's Wharf Brisbane
The $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf development is set to transform Brisbane.
With an anticipated staged opening from April 2024, this 12-hectare precinct will be a game-changer – creating a vibrant new tourism playground within the CBD that will bolster Brisbane’s destinational appeal ahead of the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Positioned at the heart of the Queen’s Wharf precinct, The Star Brisbane will deliver four new luxury hotels, a myriad of new restaurants, bars and entertainment experiences, luxury retail, and a state-of-the-art Event Centre to the Brisbane CBD.
Its state-of-the-art Event Centre will be home to Brisbane’s largest hotel ballroom and provide access to four future luxury hotels including The Star’s own 5-star hotel offering The Star Grand, a contemporary 4.5-star Dorsett hotel, Australia’s only ultra-luxury Rosewood hotel and the grandeur of one of city’s most iconic heritage hotels.
Perched between the resort’s four towers, 37 metres above street level, a 12,000sqm open-air Leisure Deck will deliver an impressive mixed-use space for hotel guests and the public to enjoy. The Leisure Deck will feature an Event Deck, expansive lawn area for sunset picnics and exclusive resort amenities overlooking the city skyline.
It will be the gateway to The Star’s 250-metre-long Sky Deck – a landmark destination which is set become one of Brisbane’s top drawcards. Soaring 100 metres above the Brisbane River, the rooftop space features spectacular restaurants and bars and will be a place where locals and visitors meet, celebrate, or simply soak in the breathtaking views, complementing a huge variety of dining and entertainment options.
The world-class Queen’s Wharf precinct stretches across more than 12 hectares of CBD land, blending thoughtfully restored heritage buildings with stunning contemporary architecture and beautifully landscaped riverside destinations. It is expected to attract an estimated 1.4 million additional visitors each year and provides an exciting glimpse into the calibre of futuristic attractions that are transforming the Olympic City’s skyline.
When complete, Queen’s Wharf will deliver an estimated 1,000 premium hotel rooms, more than 50 new food and beverage experiences, world-class entertainment, luxury retail, stunning public artworks, the restoration of nine heritage buildings, 1,500 residential apartments and 12 football fields of public space in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD.
The development will also provide a pedestrian link between two of Brisbane’s largest cultural and lifestyle precincts, connecting South Bank to Queen’s Wharf and The Star Brisbane via the Neville Bonner Bridge.
Queen’s Wharf Brisbane is being delivered by Destination Brisbane Consortium – a joint venture between lead partner, The Star Entertainment Group, and its Hong-Kong based partners, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium.
