Grassed Riverbank

Guests are also welcome to seat themselves on the grassed riverbank with a picnic blanket. This seating is FREE

Important Note Regarding Allocated Seating: Allocated seating space within the Elizabeth II Park’s Amphitheatre is not suitable for people with:

  • wheelchairs or walkers. An area will be reserved for people in wheelchairs on a first come first served basis. Those wanting to locate this area should approach a friendly QPRC employee for assistance.
  • Prams or pushers. There will also be space allocated for pram parking. Prams can be parked in this location so they don’t obstruct others view of the stage.
  • Large coolers or picnic blankets. Best to grab a spot on the lawn if wanting to spread out.

What to bring

For dinner, you are invited to bring your own picnic (alcohol is permitted), or you can experience local gourmet street food - beer and wine tasting also available.

Parking

Free parking is available at Riverside Plaza or Morisset St car-park (bus interchange).

Entry

Members of the public are welcome to start their night from 5pm. Allocated seating will be open, food will be served and the river will be lapping at the shore ready for a night of music! If you need help finding your seat please approach a friendly QPRC staff member to assist you. You will need to bring your ticket with you either printed or electronically on the night.

Weather

The weather is always an important factor when planning events in our region and at this stage the weather is expected to be wonderful. Of course, as with any outdoor event, preparation is the key to comfort. Depending on when you arrive at Queen Elizabeth II Park and where you will be seated you could be in the afternoon sun or the cool of the evening, so please bring those things that will make you most comfortable throughout the concert, including an umbrella just in case. In the unlikely event that the Symphony by the River is postponed or cancelled due to bad weather you will be informed by Council’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and the main website page.
