Remember to mark Saturday 25 September 2021 in your diaries and phones now to make sure you don't miss this extraordinary activity that Brisbane looks forward to every year.

This free event can be seen from notable vantage points around Brisbane with some of the most popular points being our favourite parks and outdoor spaces such as:

Southbank Parklands, South Brisbane
Mount Cootha Lookout
Captain Burke Park, Holman Street Kangaroo Point
Kangaroo Point Cliffs
Victoria Bridge
Wilson's Lookout, New Farm

Why not pack a picnic or visit one of the inner-city restaurants to get the best views. If you can't make it to the city centre, you can always listen to Triple M's live broadcast or watch Channel 9's exclusive live television coverage.

Brisbane Riverfire is part of the annual Brisbane Festival, the city's premier arts and cultural event which sees thousands of fireworks launched and explode in the skies creating a colourful installation for the senses. In fact, Riverfire is the concluding event of the Brisbane Festival to say farewell for another year with a bang.

The 20 minutes of fireworks appear from city landmarks such as rooftops, barges and bridges. They follow aerobatics displays from the Australian Defence Force of super hornets which make a low flying entrance as well as helicopters (to be confirmed). The entertainment kicks off at 4pm and the fireworks explode at 7pm.

Like so many activities, the event was sadly but understandably cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID 19 pandemic. For those with pets who may be scared of the additional noise, be sure to keep your fur kids safe and indoors.

So get ready Brisbane to light up the September skies for this year's Sunsuper Brisbane Riverfire.
