The Sunsuper Riverfire 2014 is soon to be exploding on Brisbane's doorstep again very soon. On the 27th of September 2014, a massive display of fireworks will be dancing around the city skyline, marking the end of the inaugural Brisbane Festival - a festival dedicated to dance, comedy, opera, circus and much more.
The fireworks display is such a spectacle. Each colourful explosion is sure to leave its magical touch on each spectator. It is hard to imagine anyone walking away from this event being disappointed. The Australian Defence Force also puts on a display with their helicopters and super hornets. The sheer speed and sound of these incredible flying machines is enough to give you goosebumps.
The first ever Riverfire display was held in 1996 as a initiative by the Brisbane City Council and Queensland Government to support the arts in the city. Things have developed rapidly over this time and now more than one million people enjoy the Sunsuper Riverfire night each year.
With this in mind it is essential to know where the major vantage points are around the city to make sure you get the best view possible. South Bank, Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Victoria Bridge, Captain Burke Park, Wilson's Lookout, and City Riverwalk (including Riverside Centre and Eagle Street Pier) are said to be the places with the best views. Be sure to get there early to reserve your position. And why not take along a picnic, a few fold out chairs and an esky? It will be the perfect way to soak up the incredible atmosphere. Be sure to take along some form of radio and listen to the Triple M broadcast. They even provide a soundtrack for the fireworks.
