Footfall update

We had a good number of visitors coming to the Waterfront this past weekend thanks to the long weekend coinciding with month-end. Saturday held the spotlight as the 2nd best Saturday of the year. We did not see as much of a jump as hoped for the voting day public holiday, but it was a fantastic weekend nonetheless

The rolling 7-day figure jumped nicely and is now at 308k, 17.0% up vs the same time last week and equates to an average daily footfall of 44.0k people per day.
