Inner city suburb of New Farm

New Farm is a very popular and cosmopolitan inner city suburb on the Brisbane River with a big park and and many coffee shops.

Lots of apartment buildings

The park is popular on weekends for all sort of
gatherings and picnics.

But there are also very posh houses.

The city cat ferry stops at New Farm Park

More posh houses across the river

A city ferry chugs along the river

A city cat arrives at Sydney Street Terminal

New Farm Park Pavilion sometimes has concerts


The Powerhouse Complex used to be a power station but has been
converted by the city council and state government into an arts
complex with theaters and restaurants.

  1. We have always loved New Farm. I have enjoyed strolling around with you! I love this idea for a Blog, Dad. I think Dave and I might try to do something similar with London. "Our London" that sort of thing.

    Thanks for sharing this! I shall use this to show my friends where I am from.
    Love
    Carol

  11. First of all I'd like to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I value them very much even if not much is said. Someone is taking their time to let me know they looked. Second, welcome to the blogosphere. There are a lot of nice folks here from all over the world and I'm getting to know some of them pretty well. They are changing the way I think in that I would be proud to be called their friend regardless of government or religion or any of the many things that are different about us that makes this earth such special place. I am learning so much about places foreign to me and to which I'll not likely see in person unless I get real lucky. For instance, I have 5 followers from Australia all from different areas and each one is teaching me about there own world there. I know you've just begun this journey but I like what I see so far and I figure that if I become your follower I'll get to know something about your beautiful Brisbane. Keep up the good work. I'll be waiting for you to show me something new every now and then. Good luck!
