About the Adelaide Riverbank

Encompassing 380 hectares around the River Torrens, from Gilberton in the east through to Bonython Park and Bowden in the north-west, the Adelaide Riverbank is home to many of our city's significant buildings and public spaces.

Our Vision

Working in partnership with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, the Adelaide City Council, Precinct Partners and other state government agencies, Renewal SA, through the Riverbank Authority, will drive the revitalisation of our riverbank over the next 20 years.

Our vision for the Adelaide Riverbank is to improve accessibility to and through the precinct, create key destinations, and install a program of activation and placemaking activities to generate positive visitor experiences and perception of the space.

Community feedback

In 2013 we invited community feedback on the draft vision and guiding principles for reactivating the riverbank. The results were overwhelming with support of 91.7% of respondents supportive of our vision for Adelaide's Riverbank revitalisation. Read the community's feedback by downloading the following case studies.
