The Riverlink

An architectural gateway

The Riverlink is set right in the heart of The Levee and connects High Street to the banks of the Hunter River and direct access to the Riverside Walk.  On the western side, The Riverlink contains a two storey restaurant that overlooks the stunning views of the river.  On the eastern side of The Riverlink there are beautiful new public amenities. 

The Riverlink also hosts a range of events, such as Live at the Levee, flagship events and many other place activations throughout the year.
