Artful Nature


There's no better way to enjoy Brisbane's sub-tropical climate, enviable outdoor lifestyle and vibrant urban villages than by spending time in the city's lush, open green spaces and getting under the skin of its creative precincts. You can discover Brisbane in all its glory through the eyes of a local on an 'Artful Nature' tour with Brisbane Greeters. The tour will make use of the city's walking and public transport facilities to give you a glimpse into what makes Brisbane the most bio diverse city in Australia as well as a centre for creativity.

Brisbane's gardens, located along the banks of its expansive river, are complemented by its iconic heritage buildings; including Old Government House, which is also home to the William Robinson Gallery, and Brisbane Powerhouse, a former power station turned arts and cultural hub.

Brisbane Greeters run free, customisable tours led by locals who are enthusiastic about introducing you to their city, and sharing their intimate knowledge. While the Greeter service is a free public service, you will need to pay for any public transport, food and beverage consumed, and any applicable admission fees.

Full itinerary

Board a City Cat from Riverside Ferry Terminal and cruise down the river to New Farm Park and the Brisbane Powerhouse.

New Farm is one of Brisbane's oldest suburbs with New Farm Park taking centre stage. The park is noted for its large rose gardens and is covered by a wide variety of trees including Jacarandas, Poincianas, Figs, Palms and Coral trees. The famous Jacaranda Drive is a major attraction of the park, along with the central lawn that has the rose garden arrangements. There are picnic and barbecue areas around the riverbank. A huge jungle gym also forms a part of the Park and there is plenty of play equipment available for children.

Brisbane Powerhouse is both a producer of contemporary performing arts and a multi-arts venue. 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, including theatre, music, comedy, film, visual arts, festivals and ideas.

New Farm to Brisbane City

Free guided walks are available with City Botanic Gardens Volunteer Guides twice daily

One of Queensland's most significant heritage buildings, Old Government House (OGH) was completed in 1862 and served as home for the first eleven governors.
