The Sky Deck at Queen’s Wharf Brisbane has offered a preview of what to expect from its location 100m above the Brisbane River.

The 250m long open-air rooftop venue will offer a signature restaurant, all day casual dining and a hero bar as well as a sky-high events space and a glass floor viewing platform.

Robbie Cooke, The Star Entertainment Group’s managing director and CEO, said the new Sky Deck will come to rival Australia’s most photographed iconic locations, such as the Sydney Opera House or Melbourne’s laneways.

“The Sky Deck will be the centrepiece for the game-changing $3.6 billion riverside development,” he said.

“It will be a must-visit Queensland tourism destination attracting millions of international and interstate visitors in the run up to the 2032 Games.

“The Sky Deck will be a first for Brisbane. It will be open day and night, 365 days a year for up to 1,500 people as somewhere to celebrate a special event, to bring visiting friends and family or even as a meeting place for a drink after work.”

The second bridge of the Sky Deck is soon to be lifted into place to link The Star Grand Hotel to the Residential Tower.

“It really is a unique engineering feat with the third, final and largest sky deck bridge link expected to be installed in the coming months completing the distinctive arc shape,” said Simon Crooks, Destination Brisbane Consortium project director.

Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will begin a staged opening at the end of the year, and will offer four new luxury hotels, more than 50 new bars and restaurants and more than 12 football fields of public space including art works and restored heritage buildings when fully completed.
