City Escape

Spicers Balfour is a luxury hotel right in the heart of trendy New Farm. The guest rooms are split between two neighbouring buildings in Balfour Street New Farm. Art deco style – the suites are visual works of art with a touch of glamour and luxury.

The hotel has a wonderful restaurant and a rooftop bar with great views of the city. A great place for High Tea.

You’d never know this inner-city sanctuary was a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Brisbane City.

A short uber ride away from leafy New Farm is Eagle Street Pier offering plenty of fine places to dine with river views. The other option is a spin on the historic Kookaburra Queen. They run all kinds of events on board from morning tea cruises through to dinners onboard. Coming up is Christmas In July.

Also this Winter, Customs House on the waterfront have a new popup bar complete with
Igloos! Their Absolut Winter experience runs thoughout the cooler weather and they take group bookings.
