One of the city’s most exciting and dynamic areas is Riverway, offering a combination of commercial, cultural, and leisure/sports activities. This riverfront parkland, opened in 2006, stretches for 11 km (7 mi) along the Cross River. The nearby business district, where you can visit a number of trendy shops and cafés, is connected to the parkland area by a pathway stretching along the shore. Enjoy a variety of water sports at the site’s calm lagoon, or drop by the nearby cricket stadium (with a capacity of over 10,000 visitors) to experience the famous Australian game day atmosphere. A convenient arts center and gallery are located in the area as well, hosting regular exhibitions, plays, and concerts.
