Not packed in a bus. Not herded with a group. Self guided walk is the SAFEST way to sightsee while observing SOCIAL DISTANCING!

New Farm Walk (Self Guided), Brisbane

Get out and enjoy the great outdoors with a sightseeing walk of the New Farm district. This beautiful part of Brisbane is filled with delightful outdoor spaces, such as the tree-lined streets and New Farm Park, the heart of the suburb.

You could easily enjoy an entire day of fun and relaxation at the park. Breathe in the gorgeous scents from the large displays of roses and revel in the colorful sights of jacarandas and poincianas. Take to the cycle loops on two wheels and let the children loose on the adventure playground, which features a large climbing net and a fort-like treehouse.

For some quieter moments, select a riverside spot for a picnic. Other eating options include a restaurant, a bistro and the End of the Road Coffee, a charming café with river views, fresh roasted coffee and a well-stocked bookshelf from which you can select a read.

At the eastern corner of the park is the Brisbane Powerhouse. This former electric tramway power station is now a community arts and performance space with many cultural happenings and festivals. After your park visit, look in on the nearby Merthyr Village. This shopping precinct has more than 20 specialty stores, cafés, restaurants and a supermarket.
