Riverfire Carnival

Oakwood Hotel & Apartments

Riverfire 2018 is set to go off with a bang on September 29, and what better place to enjoy it than from an exclusive vantage point atop the perfectly located Oakwood Hotel & Apartments.

Situated directly beside the iconic Story Bridge with stunning views along the Riverside stretch of the river all the way through to Kangaroo Point, Oakwood Hotel & Apartments delivers views of Brisbane's night of nights like no other. Even better, you won't have to jostle with the masses down at river level, instead, you'll be so up-close-and-personal with the sky show, you'll think they're all just for you!

Riverfire 2018 includes some amazing aerial experiences that are a highlight for party-goers of all ages. The RAAF treat us to fly-overs in their C17 Globemasters, and the F18 Super Hornets, whilst the Army will impress us with the MRH 90 and Tiger Helicopters.

Guests will be so close to the helicopter fly-overs it will make you feel like you can reach out and touch them! You can't get much better than that!
