Howard Smith Wharves Development

Bored with eating just on Kangaroo Point? Head on over to the new redevelopment of the Howard Smith Wharves.  Open in November 2018 the 3.43 hectare site  includes several restaurants, an over water bar,  a new riverside parkland and boutique hotel (still under development).  Two lifts give access from Bowen Terrace above, vehicle access is via Boundary Street. Wilson Parking available but Kangaroo Point residents only have to cross the bridge by foot.

At the moment, during the holiday season, it’s bustling and loud but should be a lot calmer by the end of January 2019.



The committees of Stradbroke and Macleay Tower and Villas enjoyed a joint BBQ recently. It was the first time we had done this and given that our twin buildings share a lot of the same issues it was an excellent opportunity to discuss ideas in a relaxed way.  The BBQ was a hit and it was nice to meet some of our neighbours.
