Brisbane Powerhouse


Nestled on the beautiful banks of Brisbane River (beside New Farm Park) the former power station has become a distinct landmark, both as a stunning industrial creation and as a hub for everything creative.

The Brisbane City Council New Farm Powerhouse was designed by Brisbane City Council Tramway architect, Roy Rusden Ogg. At its peak in the post-war years it supplied electricity for the largest tram network in the southern hemisphere. As trams were replaced by buses, it was decommissioned in 1971.

The redeveloped Brisbane Powerhouse was designed by Brisbane City Council architect Peter Roy and was opened on 10 May, 2000 by Lord Mayor Jim Soorley. Seven years later the building underwent a further stage of development, re-opening on 6 June 2007 by Lord Mayor Campbell Newman with increased audience capacities, restaurant and bar facilities as well as functions and conference spaces.

Brisbane Powerhouse boasts a flexible 400 - 700 seat 'end on' stage theatre, an intimate 200 seat apron stage theatre, an 800 viewer open platform, two restaurants, conference and rehearsal rooms and offices.

Brisbane Powerhouse is a not-for-profit organisation owned and supported by the Brisbane City Council.

New Farm Park


Only three CityCat stops from the Central Business District, the inner-northern village of New Farm has long been a place to connect with others. Relax in the beautifully shaded surrounds of New Farm Park, where picnickers seem almost permanently perched on deck chairs and checked rugs.

The historic Brisbane Powerhouse, situated right next to New Farm Park, is also a must-see, playing host to live arts, weekend farmers markets and moonlight cinema (seasonal).

Mowbray Park and East Brisbane War Memorial


A rare life-size statue of an Australian Light Horseman was unveiled while guns still fired. The monument was erected in riverside Mowbray Park in August 1917, and is the first of Brisbane's WWI memorials.

Initiated by the East Brisbane Cadet Committee, it set out to honour the 520 early enlistments from Kangaroo Point and East Brisbane. Additional plates bearing more names were added during and after the war.

Annerley monumental mason Alfred Batson carved the soldier statue from Helidon sandstone. The memorial is flanked by two cannons, reputedly part of Thursday Island's 19th century defences.

To enable the expansion of the Bowling Club, the memorial was moved in 1974 to its present position to the east on the central path at the Lytton Road end of the 3.2 hectare park.

Bulimba Memorial Park


Take a close look at the sprawling weeping figs on trendy Bulimba's Oxford Street: they are what's left of a living tribute to serviceman killed in action in WWI. The trees, planted between 1919 and 1923, flanked three sides of the memorial park, dedicated in November 1919. Name plaques were once attached.

A wrought iron arch bearing the words 'Memorial Park' presents a formal gateway to the park and a lectern-like concrete pillar bears a brass memorial plaque to the soldiers, sailors and nurses of Bulimba who enlisted.

Local fundraising also enabled the park's two-storeyed grandstand to be built, in 1923, as a further memorial. Its architect is thought to have been GMH Addison who designed the ferry terminal building at the end of Oxford Street. The 4.6ha park is a popular place for family outings, picnickers and sport year-round.

Oxford Street Bulimba


Embracing Brisbane's sun-filled outdoor lifestyle, Bulimba is a sprawling precinct home to quiet leafy streets and green spaces perfect for picnicking. At the heart of this laid back precinct is Oxford Street, which leads you past a vibrant assortment of shops, cafes, homeware and fashion stores down to a tranquil riverside setting, where CityCats and ferries come and go.

Take a stroll along Oxford Street to discover bustling breakfast bars, boutiques brimming with treasures and local institutions like the Balmoral Cineplex cinemas, where you can still see a movie for less than $10.

St Marys Anglican Church, Memorial Chapel


The first woman to practise medicine in Queensland, Lilian Cooper, and her lifetime partner Josephine Bedford, were regular worshippers at St Mary's Anglican Church, colloquially known as the naval chapel and once linked by stairs down the Kangaroo Point cliffs to the naval stores below.

Within the church, two large gothic stained glass windows and an altar are dedicated to Cooper and her WWI heroics.

Dismissed by English and Australian military authorities because she was female, Cooper signed up with the Scottish Women's Hospitals Service. Bedford went too. While Cooper worked to stabilise casualties just behind the Serbian front, Bedford ferried the injured to safety. Their war efforts earned them the Order of St Sava.

They returned to Brisbane in time to continue their community welfare efforts and fight the Spanish flu epidemic that returned with servicemen.

The Warriors' Chapel was dedicated in 1950, commemorating armed service and merchant navy personnel who died in both world wars. Navy memorials can be found throughout the grounds, overlooking the Brisbane River.
