Bretts Wharf is located on the northern side of the Brisbane River serving the Brisbane suburb of Hamilton. Bretts Wharf was the terminus for downstream CityCat services until Apollo Road reopened in February 2008. It is served by Transdev Brisbane Ferries' CityCat services.[1][2]

History[edit]

Original wharf[edit]

Ferry services to Bretts Wharf were withdrawn in December 1998 when services east of Norman Park were withdrawn.[3] Services were restored in January 2007.[4]

The wharf sustained minor damage during the January 2011 Brisbane floods.[5] It reopened after repairs on 14 February 2011.[6][7] It closed on 12 June 2015 and was demolished.[8]

New wharf[edit]

On 13 June 2015, a new wharf opened 200 metres east of the original wharf. It was built in association with improvement works to the adjoining Kingsford Smith Drive.[8][9]
