Stops and stations for Riverfire

Getting there

Scheduled services

There are heaps of scheduled bus, train and ferry services that can get you to Riverfire. 

Check journey planner so you can plan ahead!

Riverfire is close to South Bank bus and train stations, nearby ferry terminals, and other nearby stops and stations.

Please note: CityCat and ferry services will not run during the fireworks display. 

Additional services

This year there'll be additional bus, train and ferry services across the network from 4pm.

Event shuttles will run every 8 minutes between 4pm to 7pm from:
