Explore New Farm


Brisbane Powerhouse is located next to the beautiful New Farm Park, one of Brisbane’s most popular and much loved recreational facilities.

Pack a picnic, smell the roses in the garden, play a game of tennis, let the kids loose in the playground, enjoy a coffee, or just sit back and take in the sunshine. Learn more about New Farm Park.

Several city buses run regularly from the suburb to the inner city and beyond, as well as CityCat services that give visitors a scenic ride down the Brisbane River with stops at popular tourist spots like South Bank, the Cultural Centre and the inner city.

Dining and refreshment options are numerous, with our two restaurants Bar Alto and WATT offering fine dining, casual meals, and bar options. Merthyr Village is a popular option for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there is a supermarket, several independent grocery stores and the award-winning butcher Rayners Meats.

Whether you plan to shop in the many boutiques, explore the burgeoning food scene, or take in a show, you’ll find that New Farm is the perfect place to start.
