Newstead and Teneriffe

Between New Farm and Breakfast Creek, these suburbs once encompassed one of Brisbane’s major industrial precincts. Its deep-water frontage made it the perfect dock for ships and in the late 19th century a railway was built, bringing export wool from the booming inland sheep properties. In 1987 development zoning was changed from industrial to high-density residential, and these days the rugged industrial architecture of the old wool stores, warehouses, wharves and laneways provides the framework for stylish restaurants, cafes and bars, and antiques and homewares shops.
