Brisbane Powerhouse information
On the eastern flank of New Farm Park stands the Powerhouse, a once-derelict power station that’s been superbly transformed into a contemporary arts centre. Inside the brick husk are graffiti remnants, pieces of industrial machinery and lights made from old electrical transformers. The Powerhouse hosts a range of visual arts, food-and-wine events, and comedy and musical performances (many free). There are also two riverside restaurants. Download the free Generator app for an audio tour of the amazing old building.
