Unlocking the Riverbank’s true potential

Adelaide Riverbank – known to the Kaurna as Karrawirra Pari, the Redgum Forest River – is the geographic and spiritual heart of Adelaide. It has been a place of gathering for millennia.

Encompassing 380 hectares around the River Torrens, from Gilberton in the east through to Bonython Park and Bowden in the north-west, Adelaide Riverbank is home to many of our city’s significant buildings and public spaces, including an unparalleled collection of ‘for benefit’ institutions.

The revitalisation and activation of the riverbank precinct is vital to the future growth and success of South Australia. Momentum generated by recent development within the Adelaide Riverbank precinct, such as the redevelopment of Lot Fourteen and Festival Plaza and revitalisation of the Adelaide Railway Station, provide a perfect opportunity to connect and leverage other investments, create integrated destinations and maximise social and economic benefits.
