New Farm Walking Tour: Mainly Moray Street

18th May 2024

MEET US at the bus stop adjacent to the To Be Thai restaurant, 92 Merthyr Rd. This is the starting point for a 90-minute walk which will focus on Moray Street, and also take in Merthyr Rd and Bowen Tce in New Farm.

Moray Street was likely named by George Raff, a Scot from Morayshire. In the 1860s it would have been but a dusty track running past his homestead Moraybank, which was once beside today’s Moray Cafe.

You will enjoy locations which are particularly rich in social and architectural history. We will pause before spots such as Linden, the Knells, Julius St, the Moreton Club, and Casa del Mar, before taking in the panorama of the Story Bridge.

By the time we return to Merthyr Village, morning tea will have been very well-earned.

Your tour guide will be Gerard Benjamin, author of three wonderfully-informative books about New Farm, including the current best-seller, New Farm: 50 Stories.

8:30 – 10am | 92 Merthyr Rd, New Farm
