New Farm is Brisbane's trendiet suburb. It was a drug and prostition hot spot until the 1990's. Then gentrification kicked in and now New Farm has become a cafe hot spot popular with professionals, gays, empty nesters and singles. More than 2/3 of New Farm's residents have no children. While neighbouring Fortitude Valley is known for its nightlife and popularity with younger crowds, in New Farm you are unlikely to see much if any riff raff. It's just 2km from the city centre, is on the ferry route, and has a good weekend market every second Saturday. This place is not cheap to live, but is incredibly convenient and appealing. There are three main shopping areas in New Farm: (1) Brunswick St - here you will find cafes, homewares stores, clothes, florists and a few other offerings. (2) Merthyr Village has some good food shops. (3) James St - an upmarket shopping area with a great gourmet food market. There's always plenty of activity here.

 At the southern end of New Farm is New Farm Park. It's a large park popular with the locals. It also borders the Brisbane River and is next to The Powerhouse community arts facility - which also happens to have a great bar and restaurant and hosts a farmers' market on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.
Location: inner city. Distance from city centre: 2km. Direction: east. Postcode: 4005 (More information below and to your left <<<)
