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.

The Adelaide Riverbank will become a source of pride for South Australians and a statement of how we wish to live in this place

The results were overwhelming with support of 91.7% of respondents supportive of our vision for Adelaide's Riverbank revitalisation.
