Brisbane City Council is now progressing plans to secure one of Australia’s best hospitality operators for a landmark dining destination in the middle of the bridge, with real estate firm Colliers already in talks with some of the country’s best known restaurateurs.

The final design of Kangaroo Point Green Bridge features an above-water restaurant and dining space above the viewing area on the approach to the city landing and a café at the city landing plaza.

Other smaller food and beverage outlets are also proposed at viewing platforms along the length of the bridge, providing opportunities to pause and enjoy stunning river views.

“The Kangaroo Point Green Bridge won’t just be a bridge. It will be a destination,” said Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner. 

“When this bridge is complete, it will be one of the best vantage points to take in Brisbane with panoramic views of our city and the campaign to secure an operator is expected to attract significant interest,” he said. 

Construction Update

As of April 2022, construction activities at the Kangaroo Point site will continue in preparation for major works starting in May 2022. 

Works include construction of a new shared path in C.T. White Park and site office sewerage connection works in C.T. White Park and Hamilton Street.

Based on the projected timeline, construction of the green bridge is expected to be complete by late 2023.
