Dropped in on the way to the Brisbane Airport - 10 minutes from the City and 10 minutes from the airport. Beside the Brisbane River so views of the river traffic and fabulous homes opposite - great coffee and choice of food - fantastic.

What an amazing site! Touring through the inside of the old power station is amazing. Outside the farmers market attracted a huge crowd with plenty of good, local food, drinks and produce.

Parking is on site but very limited. You are better off parking near New Farm Park and get early to enjoy the pleasant walk
