Things To Do
The surrounding streets of New Farm are crammed with metropolitan street chic, and the much-loved local cafes, restaurants, bars, cinemas and boutiques are the creative and cultural heartbeat of the city. The nearby James Street and Howard Smith Wharves entertainment and lifestyle precincts literally burst with activity, while the winding Brisbane River and leafy local parks provide peaceful sanctuary.
Local experiences include Howard Smith Wharves dining and entertainment precinct, New Farm Park, the James Street shopping precinct, Gallery of Modern Art, Story Bridge Adventure Climb, South Bank precinct, Riverlife kayak and rock climbing and local craft breweries
Start the day with one of Spicers Balfour’s famous breakfasts and enjoy our lunch or dinner menu, featuring modern Vietnamese flavors. Beneath The Balfour Kitchen & Bar’s classic corrugated tin roof and sheltered from the street by gentle tree branches, the Vietnamese inspired menu creations are fresh and indulgent. Wind down at the end of the day in the rooftop bar with views of the Story Bridge and city skyline - the ideal place to take in the sunset each evening with a cocktail or a glass of bubbles.
