Northshore is the largest waterfront urban renewal project in Queensland and is destined to become a true Brisbane icon.

Over the next 20 years, this 304 hectare precinct will transform from an industrial area into a vibrant riverside precinct which stretches 2.5 kilometres along the Brisbane river.

Discover what’s on the horizon and how Northshore will develop into an even greater destination via:

Infrastructure upgrades

  • In December 2018, Brisbane based JMac Constructions was appointed as the park contractor. You can read more about it on the news feed.
  • In early 2018 construction commenced on the Wharf Close pop-up park at Northshore. The pop-up park is located at the old Eat Street site at the end of Wharf Close and will provide local residents, dogs and the community with an outdoor space while Hercules Street Park (Hamilton Recreation Reserve) is revitalised. The pop-up park will include a dog-off-leash area, a grass oval and some children's play equipment and is open between 5.00 am - 7.00 pm.
  • Hercules Street Park (Hamilton Recreation Reserve) will undergo a $10 million (approximately) transformation and expansion. The proposed design includes a sprawling lawn, impressive fig garden, a picnic area, a dog park and water play facilities. The village green in the centre of the park is designed to be large enough for a game of cricket or football and with facilities for open air, amphitheatre style entertainment.

Roadwork activity

  • EDQ recently completed a $24 million road upgrade project which saw Harbour Road, Hercules Street, Remora Road and MacArthur Avenue upgraded to include four-lane, sub arterial roads with upgraded footpaths, cycle tracks, street lighting, two new signalised intersections, road resurfacing and boulevard planting.

  • Hercules Street Park playground improvements

    Please be advised that the Hercules Street Park playground at the western end of Northshore will be temporarily closed for minor improvement works from the 24 August to 8 September 2020.

    These dates are subject to change pending construction completion but all efforts will be made to complete works before popular use over the school holidays.

    Some preliminary works for foundations of the playground improvements will begin this week. These works will largely be conducted in garden beds adjacent to the water play zone, and have minimal impact on use of the park and playground until 24 August. At certain times there will be closures of the small car park to the west of the playground to accommodate construction vehicles and equipment.

    Alternative parking can be located at: 92 MacArthur Avenue

    These works are being conducted in response to community feedback requesting additional shade, and observations of misuse of play equipment with some choosing to climb on top of the playground structure.

    Once improvements have been made, visitors to the park will enjoy increased shade zones and safety ready for the summer months ahead.

    With Hercules Street Park now complete, dog fun can now be found in the off leash area of Hercules Street Park.

    The Wharf Close Pop-up space has always been intended to provide temporary activity that will appeal to a wide variety of interests and ages.

    During COVID-19 restrictions we closed the park and will re-open with new activities and programs suited to the Pop-up space.

    Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page for new installations in the space, as restrictions ease.

    The personal safety of our residents and visitors remains our highest priority. As such, park equipment, playgrounds, BBQ’s and dog parks within Northshore are closed in precaution against transmission of Coronavirus.

    This applies to Wharf Close Pop up park and Hercules Street Park. Please visit the Brisbane City Council website for park updates.

  • Hercules Street Park Playground Enhancement Works

    The upgraded Hercules Street Park opened on 20 December 2019 and has been heavily patronised by the community. To date EDQ has received a lot of positive feedback about the park and the quality of the features provided. We have also received useful suggestions from the community on additional features that could be implemented around the playground. The key items of feedback were:


    • More shade in the seating areas around the playground
    • Shade to the spiral slide to reduce the heat of the slide
    • Improvements to the operation of the long slide, particularly when it is wet

    EDQ has taken these suggestions on board and is in the process of implementing the following enhancements:

    • Provision of a shade sail over the spiral slide and swing set
    • Provision of umbrellas over seating areas to provide shade until the trees in the park grow and provide shade
    • Increasing the softfall at the end of the long slide, adding hold rails on sides of the slides and adding climbing features on the slope either side of the long slide


    These works are expected to be completed by late March 2020 (due to delays from wet weather).

    Whilst the works are being undertaken some closures of the playground and surrounding areas of the park will be required. Signage will be installed prior to the closures.

    We thank you for your patience during the construction of the park and again whilst we make these enhancements to the playground.

    It is with excitement that we announce, Hercules Street Park is now open to the public and can be enjoyed by residents and community members.

    The new park features:

    • 16,000 new plants that are specifically chosen for the Brisbane environment.
    • A playground and waterplay facility. The waterplay facility releases water and mist in a random pattern for children to enjoy and provides a cooling effect to its surrounds. The thoughtful design of the park includes a system to collect and recycle the water from the water play facility.
    • A dog off-leash park.
    • A multicourt play area and exercise area.
    • Barbeque and seating areas.
