This place is a fancy place where fine dinning and midrange options are available. You can either drive or catch a ferry to get this place.

The area has the potential to be an exciting place to spend time relaxing by the river. It has a cinema, supermarket, accommodation as well as restaurants. Although the surrounding passenger terminal, roadworks & building can make access to the precinct a little difficult.

The shopping and restaurants at Portside are great. However the experience is spoiled by the parking in front of the shops. People should know that the parking tickets that Brookfield issue for overstaying longer than 1 hour at Portside are totally UNENFORCEABLE. If you get...More
