Riverside is home to many of Queensland’s best maintained and finest heritage buildings. This combination of natural beauty and rich and majestic heritage has recently been redeveloped into a community meeting and celebration space the equal of any in Australia. The redevelopment includes cooling landscape features, unique activity areas for the young and young at heart and new public art that celebrates the local community. The new Boathouse Pier restaurant expands out over the mighty Fitzroy River and is the perfect place to relax for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The water jets on the lower bank provide great entertainment for families and are a great way to cool down. The Fitzroy Adventure Playground is the must do adventure in the region. In Riverside is also the pride of place for the Rockhampton River held in July each year. Over several days the city riverside is transformed into a celebration of food, music and several unique pop up experiences that are rarely found outside the capital cities. A separate annual food and wine festival and regular riverside markets and events help activate the space year round.
