Where you can spot the Royals this weekend

THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are touching down in Brisbane this Saturday and there’s plenty of opportunities for you to catch a glimpse.

Kate and William will touch down at the Royal Australian Air force base in Amberley around 11 am, where they’ll receive a Ceremonial Arrival and interact with men and women of the Australian Defence Forces.

They will then head to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre around 2pm for a reception co-hosted by the Governor of Queensland and Premier Campbell Newman for more than 200 inspiring Queenslanders including young people excelling in their fields and representatives from the homeless and welfare sector, rural areas affected by drought, the conservation, education, disability, arts, sport, health, youth development, defence and business sectors.


You can catch a good glimpse of the royal couple as they walk down Russell Street at South Bank.

The public walk will commence at Russell Street (Grey Street end) to the Cultural Forecourt at South Bank Parklands.

People are encouraged to be in position for the public walk, which is scheduled to commence at 2:50pm.

A map of public viewing opportunities is now available at: www.qld.gov.au/royalvisit

A big screen will be positioned on the Cultural Forecourt at South Bank Parklands to ensure all visitors to South Bank have a prime view of the day’s events.

Although a short visit, big crowds are expected on the day. All visitors are encouraged to remain safe and courteous of Their Royal Highnesses and each other at all times.

Visitors to South Bank should arrive in plenty of time and bring adequate food and water, a hat and sunscreen. Access to toilets will be available but limited depending on crowd numbers.

The Government is also encouraging those heading up to Brisbane to hop on public transport with a lot of roads closed off for the event.
