Rivergate under the Bridge
Rivergate is a new entity in the region. Moreton Bay and the Brisbane River praovide wonderful opportunities for all boating communities, and this area is a popular visiting place for boaties from around the world.
The major marinas in the region complain that there the berths are often booked out, making it difficult for newcomers, so the Rivergate complex is great for the region. It is on the river mouth side of the great Gateway Bridge which spans the river and is the main arterial road from the south (Gold Coast etc) to the north (Sunshine Coast and northern Brisbane suburbs).
The bridge celebrated 20 years this year, and already it is being double due to the popularity of the bridge.
