New Farm is one of Brisbane's 'richest' suburbs with a plethora of options for eating, drinking, entertainment and recreation. With classical Queensland architecture, tree-lined streets and a picturesque riverside location, a day out to New Farm is always a good idea.
At the heart of this trendy suburb is New Farm Park, one of Brisbane’s oldest, grandest, and largest parks. A popular spot for locals and visitors alike, the park is located next to Brisbane Powerhouse and its riverside location makes it a perfect spot for picnics.
Beyond picnics, New Farm offers some of the best laid-back dining in Brisbane. Enjoy a drink at Bar Alto on the upper deck of the Brisbane Powerhouse, all-American BBQ at The Smoke BBQ, or authentic Vietnamese on the wrap-around veranda of The Balfour Kitchen, to name only a few.
Following the river's bend, stroll along the Brisbane River to discover neighbouring suburbs, Teneriffe and Newstead, each of which are too bursting with restaurants, bars and green spaces for the whole family to enjoy, including the iconic Newstead House.
