Rockhampton Riverside Precinct

Situated at the heart of the city along the Fitzroy River, Rockhampton Riverside Precinct is world class civic and recreation space. Commissioned by the Rockhampton Regional Council, the precinct was purposed to activate the city’s unrealised economic, cultural, and tourism potential, drive investment, and assist with the city’s recovery following Cyclone Maria in 2015. An exemplary placemaking project, the precinct acknowledges and celebrates Rockhampton’s heritage sandstone public buildings and takes advantage of its brilliant location next to the Fitzroy River.

Digilin manufactured Slim 17 linear systems protected by Shield 65 coating for the Riverside Pier, as well as Trident compact exterior fittings for the gardens and landscapes.
