New Farm Riverwalk Discovery Tour
New Farm & Districts Historical Society (NFDHS) presents ‘New Farm Riverwalk Discovery Tour’ – the history and stories of New Farm and Kangaroo Point, viewed from New Farm’s ‘Riverwalk’.
Join NFDHS for a 1.5 hr leisurely stroll along New Farm’s ‘Riverwalk’.
Be transported back to the 1800s when the first sailing ships navigated the ‘River Highway’ delivering vital supplies for the European settlement.
Hear stories of the colonial families and their river-facing mansions. Their leisure activities included sailing, rowing regattas and swimming in the River’s ‘netted pools’.
Learn bout the establishment of industrial commercial/war-time ship building, and the construction of Brisbane’s Story Bridge – an engineering masterpiece.
View up close, private residences, trendy 1930 flats and contemporary multi-million dollar apartment complexes overlooking the River.
The starting point: Merthyr Road cul-de-sac near Griffith Street intersection.
The Walk concludes at Howard Smith Wharves – the world class entertainment precinct – until recently New Farm’s derelict shipping wharves.
