Queens Wharf is a multi-purpose venue in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia with a cafe, pub, restaurant, observation tower and ferry wharf built as part of the redevelopment of the Hunter River foreshore. Opened in May 1988 by Queen Elizabeth II, it was completed as a Bicentennial project. The Queens Wharf project was the vision of Joy Cummings, who became Lord Mayor of Newcastle in 1974, the first woman ever to hold such a position in Australia.
The observation tower was demolished in September 2018. The decision to keep the observation tower would cost ratepayers $1.6 million in the next four years in maintenance costs. The total cost of demolition was estimated to cost $30,000.
The wharf also has a station on the Newcastle Light Rail.
