Things to do at New Farm Park

New Farm is one of Brisbane’s most exclusive inner city suburbs thanks to its lush riverside location and its eclectic collection of open spaces. The streets here are lined with trees and boast an extensive collection of unique Queenslander houses (look out for the ornate wraparound verandas). Elsewhere, there are plenty of quaint cafes to sip a cup of coffee in and a number of delis that are located in what is known as Brisbane’s Little Italy. There’s a big arts scene, too, with galleries peppered around and artisan shops to duck into.

Perhaps one of the biggest draws to the area though is New Farm Park, which has almost become a local institution in the area. Here, there is an adventure playground waiting to be discovered by the younger members of the family tucked between impressive Moreton Bay‘s fig trees.

The expansive stretch of green space is testament to New Farm’s love of the good life, and a day out here holds plenty of discoveries and unique sights. As well as several walking trails that weave through the scenery, there are cafes and ancient plant life to explore as well.

Things to Do in New Farm Park

Take the Riverwalk

New Farm itself is tucked into the bend of a river, which lends it a beautiful backdrop. The river winds through New Farm Park alongside a walking trail that overlooks the pretty waters. While walking, keep your eyes peeled for any native creatures that might be hiding in the water or high up in the trees that tower above you.

Cycle Around

One of the best ways to explore New Farm Park is to take to two wheels and cycle your way around. Again, the riverside trail proffers plenty of unique twists and turns, but there are numerous other cycle paths you can explore during your time in the area. Cycle to the South Bank via Brisbane Riverwalk only takes 30 minutes.

Kick Back and Relax

The scenery of New Park Farm is incredible, with pockets of riverside beauty and plenty of wildlife to discover. If you fancy a more laidback experience, simply pack a picnic, throw a rug down in the shade of one of the towering trees, and watch the world go by.

New Farm Park offers a great escape from the hustle and bustle of city life without having to venture to far from Brisbane’s centre. Once you’ve admired the stunning streets of New Farm itself, head to the park for more outdoor adventures.
