New Farm Riverwalk

View Product Information

The original New Farm Riverwalk was extensively damaged in 2011 when flood waters rose so high a section broke off and was washed downstream.  Since then the Brisbane City Council has made it a primary initiative to replace the Riverwalk with a new, re-engineered structure designed to endure the rigorous Queensland weather conditions.

The New Farm Riverwalk is a high pedestrian traffic area with over 3000 cyclists, runners, walkers and tourists using the facility everyday.  Raylinc supplied pole mounted VFL530 luminaires to light the main expanse of the walkway while inground uplights and FLB floodlights were used in pedestrian shaded areas and tourist lookouts.  The combination of low maintenance luminaires and a new resilient walkway design makes the New Farm Riverwalk a Brisbane landmark that will last long into the future, rain, hail or shine.

The New Farm Riverwalk was officially opened to the public on the 21st of September 2014.
