The New Farm Park is truly a leisure traveller’s dream come true. This natural setting gives way to breathtaking natural surroundings that would prove to be well worth the time exploring.
New Farm Park is known the world over to be the oldest and grandest of the parks in Brisbane. It’s an ideal spot to spend time with your family with enough amusements to keep your kids busy throughout the day. A line of interconnected tree houses set in a grove of age-old Banyan trees and the huge playground. A quick walk away from the playground will take you near the Brisbane River where you can feast your eyes on great views.
You’ll come across a plethora of activities to keep you fully engaged here. The large trees are perfect for climbing and the playground includes a big climbing frame, wings, rockers, and a fort. Don’t forget to bring a frisbee or ball since you will find lots of green space to play. If you are not interested in any game, you can simply snooze under a tree.
The park usually opens at 8.30 am and those who are residing at a Brisbane hotel CBD in the area, such as iStay River City can reach the park in 13 minutes. Please note that entry to this expansive park is free!
It is interesting to find that there is an electric BBQ to sizzle a snag! Some of the facilities here are designed in a way to cater to those with special needs. For instance, there are wheelchair accessible water fountains, paths and toilets. Make your friends feel jealous by uploading pictures since there’s free Wi-Fi throughout the park.
