Frequently asked questions

  • The Destination Brisbane Consortium commenced early construction works onsite in January 2017 in accordance with a development permit granted by Economic Development Queensland on 19 December 2016 (EDQ reference: DEV2016/816).

  • The Integrated Resort Development is anticipated to open in late 2022 including hotels and all public realm areas. When it opens, Brisbane's existing Treasury Casino will be replaced with a new facility at the  new Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development.

    In approximately 2022 the conversion of the Treasury building and beneath Queens Gardens to create a retail zone that links Queen Street Mall to the heart of the precinct will commence. The anticipated opening of the repurposed Treasury building is 2024.

  • All buildings within the precinct will comply with planning requirements and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority's height restrictions for the Brisbane CBD which is approximately 274 metres.

  • On Friday 12 August 2016 the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships (DATSIP) hosted a cultural closure event of the Neville Bonner Building. At the cultural closure event, attended by Senator Neville Bonner's son Alfred 'Tiny' Bonner, other Bonner family members and representatives of the Indigenous community, the then Minister for State Development Dr Anthony Lynham MP announced the naming of The Neville Bonner Bridge.

    The Neville Bonner Bridge is a pedestrian bridge linking both sides of the Brisbane River forming a greater connection between the popular South Bank and Cultural Arts precinct to Queen’s Wharf Brisbane.

    The Queensland Government also moved artwork that was located in the Neville Bonner Building to 1 William Street and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. The Neville Bonner 'bust'—a larger-than-life bronze sculpture—is now on display at Queensland's Parliament House until it's relocated to the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane precinct when construction activities are completed.
