Revitalisation of the Riverbank Precinct
Adelaide has been the best-kept secret of the mainland capitals for too long. But the word is getting out, with Adelaide leading the way. It has free CBD Wi-Fi, free city trams and a newly expanded Convention Centre and world class Adelaide Oval which make ‪‎Adelaide‬ a great place to live, work or play. There is real pleasure in showing a visitor what Adelaide has to offer.

Check out Adelaide here.

With the CBD of Adelaide opening up it is time to share a new and upcoming meeting place called the Blue Hive, which is revitalising the riverbank precinct.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is keen to promote the regeneration of the riverbank precinct.

This is the area that overlooks the River Torrens and new footbridge and adjoins the Festival Centre area. It is also in close proximity to public transport, rail, tram and taxi.

There is loads of potential, space and foot traffic in this area, as more people visit the city.
