Brisbane experiences


Teneriffe is one of Brisbane’s finest and newest suburbs. Although this area is a very old part of Brisbane it was only named the Suburb of Teneriffe in 2010, up until was a part of Newstead.

Located on the Brisbane River between New Farm and Newstead it really has it all. The river, old worlde charm, restaurants, cafes and only a short hop into the Brisbane CBD by either the fast city Glider or the City Cat. Or if you are keen to see what is going on the other side of the river at Bulimba, take the Cross River Ferry from Teneriffe at the Skyring Terrace, bus and ferry terminal.


Teneriffe is known for its history with the wool industry and this is evident by the magnificent old wool store factories that line the river and main streets. The first wool store started in 1909 with three more being established in 1915, by the 1950s nine more have been built in the area. Now the wool store factories have been converted into residential flats and units, making Teneriffe a densely populated area. This change has brought an influx of cafes, eateries and bars to the area , making the old into new and trendy.

A boardwalk on the riverside that leads from Teneriffe to New farm is great for walking, cycling, jogging or just sitting and enjoying the river views.


Every July is the popular Teneriffe festival with stalls, music and events that include "running the rams"
