This live arts precinct, housed in the restored 100-year-old New Farm Powerhouse, is the place to go for contemporary music, theatre, dance, art and comedy. Go to www.brisbanepowerhouse.org for details of upcoming shows. The landmark building itself is worth a visit and it’s a great spot for lunch, dinner or just a coffee by the river. Every second and fourth Saturday the forecourts are packed with locals foraging for the best in fresh food at the Farmers Markets. It’s also popular with dog owners and the markets run a doggie cafe (see Markets, p. 386). 119 Lamington St, New Farm; (07) 3358 8622; open 9am–5pm Mon–Fri, 12–4pm Sat.
