Oxlade Drive & Beyond Walking Tour – New Farm

15th April 2023

Join this historical tour setting out along Oxlade Drive to walk a half-circle of the peninsula.

MEET US at New Farm Park adjacent to the Ferry Terminal. This is the starting point for a two-hour walk along Oxlade Drive as well as Griffith, Maxwell and Moreton Streets in New Farm.

With its beautiful homes and gardens, Oxlade Drive is considered one of New Farm’s most attractive avenues. Adding to the thoroughfare’s interest is its historical layer of notable homes of the past, sites relating to wartime and industry, and one of Brisbane’s earliest hi-rise apartment blocks.

After Oxlade Drive, we’ll continue with the stories along Griffith, Maxwell and Moreton Streets, passing several homes which feature in the popular local book Homes with History.

By the time we arrive at Merthyr Village, having completed a ‘half-circle of the peninsula’, morning tea will have been well-earned.

Your tour guide will be Gerard Benjamin, author of Reflections on New Farm and Homes with History. He is also the regular history columnist for My Village News.
