Like most of Brisbane, a walk through New Farm will take you past Queenslander-style houses and old-fashioned colonial buildings. Cafes, restaurants and hip bars are easy to find, especially in retail strips like Merthyr Village and the James Street Market. You’ll never be short of places to grab a coffee in the morning or a drink before heading back to your New Farm hotel for the night. Of course, it would be impossible to describe this suburb without mentioning New Farm Park. This 18-hectare park has plenty of wide-open space that’s perfect for a picnic or a ball game. You can take the kids to the playground or have a BBQ right next to the river at dusk. Come to the park as September turns to October and you’ll love the bright purple flowers blooming and falling from the Jacaranda trees, making a colourful carpet on the grass. The Brisbane Powerhouse, an arts hotspot built in an old power station, is the number one place to go for live entertainment in New Farm. Live music, theatre and stand-up comedy are just some of the activities that happen on its many stages, and restaurants and bars await you too.
Settle into your New Farm hotel and the rest of Brisbane is yours to explore. Teneriffe is a small suburb next to New Farm with a riverside boardwalk where you can walk or bike ride. Fortitude Valley, just a kilometre away, is the place to go for live bands and a variety of nightclubs. On the weekends you can visit the Valley Markets in Brunswick Street Mall, a pedestrian arcade lined with cafes and bars. Feel like shopping? Catch a ferry to the Brisbane CBD and check out the bargains in Queen Street Mall, Brisbane’s open-air mall packed with over 1,000 shops. Take a ride over the Story Bridge, which lights up at night in wondrous colours, across to Kangaroo Point on the other side of the river, where you can explore the famous cliffs.
