New Farm Park

Originally an 1846 racecourse until it was bought by the Brisbane City Council in 1913, New Farm Park is a favourite spot for locals at any time, in any season. Stroll through the rose garden, picnic under the trees, listen to a band in the Rotunda, contemplate the river, and let the kids loose in the much-prized playground. First settled in the 1800s, the inner-city suburb of New Farm has a growing population and changing dynamic. The strongly Italian local community has now been joined by fashion-conscious young inner-urbans. There is still a village feel, however, with outdoor cafes, fashion shops, art galleries and bookshops.
