In recent years Newstead and Teneriffe have gone through a period of urban renewal. New apartment buildings continue to spring up, more residents are flocking to the area for a Brisbane inner-city lifestyle, and as such new bars, restaurants, eateries, and boutique beer venues are sprouting from everywhere.
Newstead and Teneriffe are two neighbours and riverside suburbs in minutes walk from Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments. Despite the facade of a modern appearance, these suburbs do have an industrial and wartime history.
Newstead’s heritage-listed former gasworks has been transformed into the booming suburb’s beating heart, along with the neighbouring Haven strip. You’ll find a top-notch grocer, tasty burgers, cheeses, meats, Chinese, Italian, juices, smoothies, poke bowls and dessert options galore, so arrive hungry.
The Submariners' Walk Heritage Trail, is where Australian and US submariners were based at the Capricorn Wharf at Teneriffe during WWII. In 2013, the Governor of Queensland opened the trail along the river where the subs used to dock. You will find plaques commemorating the men, the ships, and their service during WWII. There are seats shaped like submarines for people to sit on while they reflect on the sacrifices of war-time service personnel made. The walkway along the river is now a beautiful and peaceful place, used by cyclists, runners, walkers, and sightseers alike.
Aside from all the great things in Teneriffe and Newstead, one of the best things about the area is how close it is to everything else. Why not jump on a City Cat from Sydney Street, or take the City Cat across the river to explore Bulimba or down to the city?
