About our home

Comfortable, clean, air conditioned & character filled. Our home is tastefully furnished, with spacious rooms opening onto high, wide verandahs.
We are flexible exchangers, happy to holiday in homes smaller than ours - our priorities are location, cleanliness & comfort. Our car is available for exchange.

New Farm has a vibrant, inner city atmosphere - famous for its restaurants, cafes, market, specialty shops, performing arts, galleries, historic riverside park & playground. Everybody loves New Farm. Easy transport to City by free ferry, bus at door, or river boardwalk at the end of our road; Merthyr Rd..

Enjoy natural treasures in the heart of the city - possums scampering over the roof & owls, kookaburras & rainbow lorikeets in the garden.

Easy access to glorious beaches on the Gold & Sunshine Coasts, lush hinterland, Northern NSW, theme parks. We swim comfortably in Queensland for nine months or more each year.

Depending on our availability to travel and your needs, you are welcome to use our entire home (6 bedrooms), or our spacious self contained 2 bedroom apartment with private bathroom, front entrance, verandahs off each room and kitchenette. We live in the back section of the house. A car can be provided for conventional & points swaps. We can discuss your needs & options.

** We're interested in the UK & Europe or US & Canada 2017-19. Always interested in Aust., NZ, & Asia. We travel often; don't hesitate to contact us.

Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
New Farm is the 'place to be' for a top quality range of multi cultural cuisine. For up to the minute reviews on 50 of the best eateries go to -
Cool bars
In addition to the New Farm bars listed in the following websites, also search Fortitude Valley & Teneriffe for more neighbourhood watering holes.
Cozy cafés
There are so many! Our favourites include 'Chouquette' & 'Banneton' (authentic French) & 'New Farm Deli' (Italian) - all a very short walk from home.
Retail therapy
'New Farm Village' is our delightful shopping precinct with a large ‘Coles’ supermarket, fabulous independent fruit & veg shop, all practical shops & services… & a great range of fashion, gifts, books & little surprises.
Bit of culture
New Farm has a wonderful range of art galleries & entertainment venues (‘Brisbane Powerhouse’; ‘Judith Wright Centre’). We are also a short bus or ferry trip to the City & Southbank -, the cultural hub of Brisbane where you will find the Qld Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art, Qld Museum, Qld Performing Arts Centre……
Walks in the park
New Farm is on a peninsula, tucked into an elegant curve of the Brisbane River. Walking & cycling is serene & easy on great paths through delightful riverside parks & gardens. ‘Slightly further afield are the City Botanic Gardens’, ‘Roma Street Parklands’ & ‘Southbank’ for more spectacular parks, gardens & meticulously cared for open spaces & picnic areas.
Spot of exercise
Outside our front door you'll find a bay of 'City Cycles' - our local jump on & off bike hire. There are several good gyms & yoga studios in New Farm. Narelle is a member of 'Yoga in Daily Life' -
Day tripping
Think warm, pure white sand & sparkling aquamarine patrolled beaches. … there are miles & miles of them. An hour’s drive South takes you to the famous Gold Coast (Surfers Paradise, Currumbin, Burleigh Heads etc.), & North to the equally beautiful but less glitzy Sunshine Coast (Mooloolaba, Noosa, Maroochydore etc.) We also love the lush, green hinterland areas such as Maleny. Mt Glorious, Springbrook… which are refreshing & great for bushwalking. There’s also the nearby islands. Stradbroke is a favourite with Brisbane families – because it is so close & quick to get to.
