Brisbane Powerhouse

Whether you’re watching a show, taking in a visual arts exhibition or enjoying a picnic at New Farm Park, there’s no escaping the striking architecture of Brisbane Powerhouse.

Brisbane Powerhouse


Brisbane Powerhouse is a building that transcends time, holding close its memories of the city.

The industrial red brick facade, interior steel beams, gantry, generator and cement floors are remnants of Brisbane’s tram days; when, in the early-mid 1900s, the city was serviced by a bustling tram system. For further information about the amenities, location and parking, please visit the Brisbane Powerhouse website.
