A former electricity powerhouse, this massive brick factory is now a dynamic art space for exhibitions, contemporary performance, and live art. The building retains its character, an industrial mix of metal, glass, and stark surfaces etched with 20 years of graffiti. It’s a short walk from the New Farm ferry terminal along the riverfront through New Farm Park. The Powerhouse Farmers Markets operate on the second and fourth Saturday morning of each month, and there’s a restaurant/cafe/bar overlooking the river-Watt Restaurant + Bar.
