New Farm park is known as one of the best spots in Brisbane to relax and have a picnic with family and friends. There is plenty of space in the large park that is by the river. There are BBQ's available in several locations around the park and even Free WIFI under the gazebo.
If a home made picnic is not your thing, there are several restaurants inside the Powerhouse located right next to New Farm Park. The New Farm Bowls Club is right across the road if you want to spend a lazy Sunday trying to best your mates at lawn bowls.
While drinking is not strictly permitted it is also not frowned upon provided rubbish is removed and alcohol kept out of sight where applicable.
There are regular events in and around New Farm Park too, with Farmers markets, Arts and Craft Stalls and even yoga classes being held in the park.
The best place to find out what is going on is definitely through the website.
