Hemmed on three sides by the lazy Brisbane River, New Farm has a cosy village feel and gorgeous water views.
Make a date in New Farm Park in October to see this green space turn lavender with jacaranda blooms. Picnickers perch on rugs and soak up the sun while their fur babies make friends. Rent a bike and follow the neighbourhood’s cycling tracks…to a café or casual bar if you’re in need of caffeine or a cold craft brew. Every Saturday morning there’s an iconic farmers market outside the Brisbane Powerhouse, a funky arts space by the river.
