New Farm Park is one of Brisbane’s oldest, grandest and largest parks and attracts more than 18000 visitors each week from all around the world. The 37-acre park is popular spot with local families and friends who gather on weekends to relax, picnic, barbecue, kick a ball and catch up beneath the trees or in the open fields. The city-owned park often has free live music events in the rotunda and other special events throughout the year. Prior to European settlement, New Farm was covered with bush and dotted with shallow lagoons. Following the founding of the Moreton Bay convict settlement the land initially became a farm before sub-division in 1843. The parkland had a racecourse from 1846 until 1913, when Brisbane City Council acquired the land to create a park. New Farm Park opened in 1919. One edge of the park touches the Brisbane River and a riverfront boardwalk connects the park with Brisbane Central Business District by foot, or from the CityCat ferry terminal. Next to the park is the Brisbane Powerhouse, an incredible old building re-purposed as an edgy arts centre. Catch live music, comedy, theatre and more, plus the weekend farmers markets and moonlight cinema (seasonal). ...
