Riverfire 2017 From the Art House Rooftop


Since 2009 Brisbane has come alive each September year with the Brisbane Festival, one of Australia’s major international arts festivals. Throughout September there is a thrilling program of theatre, music, dance, circus, opera and major public events right on the doorstep of Art House.

This year Art House residents and their guests were treated to the best seat in the house on the Art House level 27 rooftop to watch the Brisbane Festival wrapping up with a bang. Riverfire is always Queensland's ultimate display of fireworks lighting up Brisbane with a showcase of vibrant colours.

This year did not disappoint with the rooftop spectators being wowed by aerobatics of Australian Defence Force RAAF Super Hornet and Army helicopter displays. This was then followed by the big finale of a 20-minute display of colour lighting up the skies of Brisbane to close out the Brisbane Festival for another year.

We were lucky enough to capture the spectacular fireworks display from the level 27 skydeck to showcase the vantage point Art House has for these iconic events.
