Things To Do
New Farm encourages an outdoor lifestyle, with tree-lined streets and unique spaces such as Brisbane Powerhouse and the heart of the suburb, New Farm Park. The park attracts visitors from near and far with its perfect riverside picnic spots, cycling loops and tree house-style adventure playground. Teneriffe, once a farming area and industrial and commercial hub, has undergone an urban resurgence. Apartments have sprung up and trendy restaurants, cafes and boutiques have followed.
Following the river's bend from Teneriffe you will discover greater Newstead which is bursting with restaurants, bars and green space for the whole family to enjoy including the iconic Newstead House.
Suburban New Farm, Newstead, and Teneriffe strike the wonderful balance between waterfront luxury and beauty, leafy greenery and big parks, and local drinking and dining fun.
