HistoryEdit

Due to poor patronage caused by bad connections with the CityCat at New Farm Park, the cross river service was withdrawn and the wharf closed in 2000.[3] The wharf reopened and the cross river service resumed on 15 January 2007, with a proper connection with the CityCat service.[4][5][6]

The wharf sustained moderate damage during the January 2011 Brisbane floods.[7] It reopened after repairs on 14 February 2011.[8][9]
