This links into New Farm Park where you will delve into the history and enjoy the scenery!

      Great Afternoon Tour

      Great afternoon with Tim! Nice views of Kangaroo Point and Mt. Coot-tha! He was very relaxed yet professional and shared with us his knowledge and experience of the city. Overall, a great way to get to know the city and get recommendations on where to go and what to do.
