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).
By Ferry At the river end of Brunswick Street a small cross-river ferry, operated by Brisbane Transport links New Farm with Norman Park. New Farm can also be accessed via two CityCat stops (operated by Brisbane Transport) - at Sydney Street and at New Farm Park.
By Bus The suburb is serviced by several bus routes to and from the city centre.
Other Things to Note
Just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation for the lovely rental home, we had a great holiday:)
Good morning Brigette,
I just wanted to say thank-you for the lovely stay that we had at Jacaranda Cottage.
From the moment we walked in we knew it was something special! There was milk in the fridge, chocolates on the bench and extremely fluffy towels - all the things that weary travellers need! Not to mention the comfy beds, lovely outdoor area and close proximity to everything.
We would most certainly stay here again if we are ever in Brisbane again, which hopefully we will be sooner rather than later!

My family and I (2 adults and 1 child) stayed in Jacaranda Cottage for several months and in that time grew to very much think of the place as home.
The house is very nicely and comfortably furnished with plenty of room for several couple or a family. The bedrooms particularly comfortable with plenty of storage space and the beds are very good quality. The bathroom is gorgeous and has a perfect bath for a soak or a child to splash happily in. The kitchen is well equipped with a good assortment of kitchen gadgets and overlooks the open plane dining and lounge area which creates a lovely open feeling in this area. This is complimented by a stunning back verandah that is perfect for an afternoon BBQ (the BBQ provided is amazing!), laze or play about. Otherwise this house has everything you would need for a short or long stay with laundry facilities, storage space and comfort.
The location is good, in a quiet street, very close to public transport and is close to a 24hr convenience store. It is just a minute drive, or a 10-15minute walk, to James St or Merthyr Village with the Gasworks Precinct and Fortitude Valley a short drive away.
Our host Brigette was great, flexible, accommodating and understanding. She was readily available and responsive.
I would highly recommend Jacaranda Cottage to anyone looking for a short or long term stay.
Jacaranda Cottage is a lovely property. It met our expectations and we enjoyed our time there. New farm is a great and convenient place to stay just minutes to the City by bus and close to restaurants and entertainment.
We had a terrific time. Lovely house, great neighbourhood, easy access to downtown.
I highly recommend Jacaranda Cottage.
This is a lovely typical, old Queenslander house, on arrival the jacaranda tree was full with blue flowers (this was November). The house and garden were exactly as in the pictures, kitchen is modern and fully equipped (not just empty drawers). Be aware this is a renovated old house so there are plenty of insects visiting the kitchen (ants and cockroaches, but the whole place is very clean), also be aware that you'll hear essentially everything the neighbors do (talking, playing music etc.) the area is quickly gentrifying so we woken by loud noise from the multiple neighboring construction sites every morning at 7am (from 8am on weekends).
Hi Roland, I am sorry to hear that you have an insect issue, if you would have let me know, I could have attended to this straight away. This issue is now being taken care of. Unfortunately in does get a little noisy in the inner city living. Regards Brigette
It was a pleasure dealing with Brigette for this property in New Farm. The Owners of Jacaranda Cottage take great pride in their property, it was a lovely place to stay. Everything was provided that we needed. The house in in excellent condition and is also in a great location, close to the city, but also with the space of New Farm Park nearby. There are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance too. We had a great visit and would gladly stay again and recommend to others visiting Brisbane.
