New Farm Suburb Profile
Real Estate Agency New Farm
As real estate agents in New Farm, we can promise you – it’s worth exploring. The New Farm boundaries are marked by Harcourt Street in the west, Chester Street, Gibbon Street, Beeston Street, Kingsholme Street, Macquarie Street and Merthyr Road in the north and the Brisbane River in the east and south.
The name New Farm reflected the original use of the area – a new cultivated farming district (c1830s). The area was also a working site of convicts around the 1870s. You won’t see many remnants of an original farming district, or of the convict history. But between each of its boundaries, you will find gorgeous homes, delicious cafes and restaurants and trendy and up-and-coming hotels and bars, all interspersed with some of the best shopping Brisbane has to offer.

Snapshot of New Farm
Brisbane’s ultimate destination suburb represents a lavish lifestyle of café culture, arts and entertainment amidst tree-lined streets with stunning river views. Beginning life as its namesake suggests, New Farm’s proximity to the city has seen the suburb gradually gentrified from rural land and grungy duckling to the affluent hotspot it is today.
The array of New Farm architecture chronicles its story – from grand Queenslanders and heritage homes to slick new pads and refurbished dames, all radiating outwards from the iconic grown-up playground that is New Farm Park. As a riverside address, many homes enjoy wide expanses of water views, while the lush, leafy streetscapes provide a quiet haven from the hustle of the nearby city and commercial precincts.
Although a pocket of solace amidst its busier neighbours, New Farm enjoys one of Brisbane’s most exclusive and sought-after shopping destinations – the iconic James St. Paired with a bustling hub of restaurants, cafes and boutique bars, plus cultural and artistic drawcards such as the Brisbane Powerhouse – the area attracts a steady stream of visitors. However, the low-key, community vibe of the suburb is well maintained, with the many visitors eagerly adopting the laid-back, luxe lifestyle. The relaxing ambience it exudes has made our real estate agency in New Farm thrive with visitors wanting a peek into the lives out here.
With visitors aplenty, the picturesque New Farm, and its hip sensibility, also provides a strong lure to young professionals wanting to call it home. Since the 1990s, high-income couples have been moving in and staking their claim. However, in our role as real estate agents New Farm we’ve recently seen a new trend emerging with an influx of baby boomers trading their empty nests to capitalise on low-maintenance living supported by the luxury apartment and latte lifestyle of New Farm. Meanwhile, many of the larger refurbished properties remain home to long-established local families.
