The revitalisation and activation of the riverbank precinct is vital to the future growth and success of South Australia, and it will form a foundation upon which Adelaide can achieve its vision of becoming one of the world’s great small cities.
Momentum generated by recent development around Adelaide Riverbank projects – such as the redevelopment of Lot Fourteen and the Adelaide Festival Plaza, and revitalisation of the Adelaide Railway Station – provide a perfect opportunity to connect with and leverage off other investments, create integrated destinations and maximise social and economic benefits.
Construction works related to these projects will create some temporary restrictions to pedestrian access through the Adelaide Riverbank precinct, including to Station Road and the northern doors of the Adelaide Railway Station. During this time, visitors are advised to seek alternative routes as outlined in the Adelaide Festival Plaza and Adelaide Railway Station access map (download below/right).
On 1 July 2018 the Riverbank Authority was dissolved and replaced by a state government appointed group known as the Riverbank Entertainment Precinct Advisory Committee (REPAC), which made up of representatives from organisations with a significant precinct presence, along with state and local government members.
The 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 annual reports the former Riverbank Authority are still available to download right/below.
