Host an event at Northshore

The host with the most

If you're searching for somewhere to hold your next event, Northshore could be just the ticket!


Northshore has a fantastic range of indoor venues ideal for entertaining. Whatever the event, large or small, you'll discover that Northshore Riverside Café, Portside Wharf and Hamilton Harbour are the perfect hosts.


For events such as outdoor theatre and cinema, festivals, expos, markets, concerts and more, Northshore has two hardstand sites — Northshore East and Northshore West, with the latter former currently home to Eat Street Markets.


Before any on-site event or activity, the organisers must enter into a licence agreement or lease with Economic Development Queensland and:

  • Pay a licence fee/rent;
  • Hold the requisite insurances, including public liability insurance for a minimum of $20 million;
  • Submit an event management plan, including a risk assessment; car parking and traffic management plan; emergency plan; waste storage/collection; power/lighting management plan, and a complaints management plan
  • Indemnity and release EDQ from liability or loss
  • Obtain all requisite approvals, permits and consents.


When it comes to having fun in The Great Outdoors, Northshore is your port of call. The precinct's 2.5-hectare Riverside Park, Old Shoreline Park and Remora Road Park are all terrific spots to hold an event or activity. 

For all enquiries and bookings, contact Brisbane City Council.
