Held in the shaded car park adjacent to the farm, this is the only purely organic produce market in Brisbane.

Cellist and saxophonists serenade shoppers as they stock up on free range eggs, fresh honey, fair trade coffee beans, herbs and Asian greens amongst the plethora of pesticide free produce. It’s also the place to buy a takeaway caffeine infusion before entering the farm zone where chai rules.

Make time for the enchanting little farm itself – a tangle of vege patches, herb gardens, chicken coops, a nursery, cafe, and rustic play equipment peppered with wandering minstrels.

If you happen to park in the vicinity of Walker St check out the thirteen bottle trees forming a guard of honour.

Explore the Arts and Brisbane's Museums at the Cultural Centre

Walking the line between "cheap" and "free" depending on whether or not there are special exhibitions being held, the entertainment-rich "cultural district" alongside Brisbane's South Bank provides a number of opportunities to get your fix of culture and history, playing host to various art galleries, museums and exhibits all within some pleasantly clean and modern surrounds. The Queensland Cultural Centre as it's known allows you to immerse yourself in a world of creativity both old and new.

On site is the Queensland Performing Centre which plays host to a number of live performances throughout the year, with everything from theatre to ballet to opera being held within its walls. Meanwhile, the Queensland Museum provides an insight into the historical, with exhibitions that focus on a specific aspect of history at different times throughout the year; despite its focus on the past, it's housed in a very slick, modern building that was constructed just a few years back. Those with a bent towards the artistic will enjoy the Queensland Art Gallery that showcases artworks from the past, while its neighboring Gallery of Modern art provides a contemporary slant on things.

With such a wide variety of cultural experiences available, there's something here to suit almost any field of interest, and all the facilities are located within easy walking distance of one another adjacent to the Cultural Centre train station for ease of access via public transport. Lastly, the towering Wheel of Brisbane sits on the shorefront just next to the museum, and makes for a great way to get panoramic views of the city at a reasonable price.
