New Farm Park is one of Brisbane’s oldest, grandest and largest parks, attracting more than 18,000 visitors each week from all around the world. Situated alongside the Brisbane River, New Farm Park is a popular location. 

On the tail end of Brunswick St, by the river, New Farm Park will entrance with its jacaranda trees, rose gardens and picnic areas. It’s a great spot to enjoy a lazy afternoon, with both gas barbecues and free wi-fi (near the rotunda at the Brisbane River end of the park). Younger kids will especially love the playground – including an extensive network of platforms set up and around the majestic Moreton Bay fig trees.  Jan Powers Farmers Market (weekends) and the Moonlight Cinema (seasonal) also feature.
