If you’re in town on the last weekend of September, don’t miss the FA18 SuperHornet flyovers. Starting just on dusk they roar up the river over the Story Bridge, Kangaroo Pt Cliffs, Southbank and the City skyscrapers. They re-appear a couple of hours later, following the Australian Army’s Helicopter Show and just prior to the spectacular fireworks finale, choreographed to Triple M’s
live music broadcast.
Best vantage points for this annual event will be: along the riverbanks at Southbank, on the Goodwill Bridge, Victoria Bridge or Kurilpa Bridge or if you can be there early enough to grab a space, along the top of the Kangaroo Pt cliffs; a prime position for keen night-time photographers.
All Brisbane City Council Buses operate free services and the toll bridges are free throughout Riverfire. Check the website for specific details.
