Dining at the historical Gasworks
Botany is a cocktail restaurant café located in vibrant Gasworks Plaza in Newstead. True to its name, Botany has many beautiful real green plants which contribute to give a unique look and atmosphere to the restaurant.

Hanging from the ceiling, climbing on trainers or situated on benches and shelves, the plants contrast beautifully with the timber and the setup of the restaurant. The plants are looked after by the personnel on the premises to stay healthy and keep growing.

Botany is a great place for breakfasts, brunches, lunches, afternoon cocktails and dinners. It is a special place to have a coffee or a drink.

It is the ideal place to catch up with friends or to celebrate a special occasion with your family. A perfect place to have a business lunch or a drink after work with your colleagues.

Gasworks Newstead

For years, the area known as Gasworks was an underutilised wasteland behind a rusty fence. In 2004, a project to clean up and transform the area started to be in place.

The old Gasworks was opened in 1887 and provided lighting to some areas in Brisbane for decades. In particular, commercial gas supply started in London in 1812, Sydney in 1841 and Melbourne in 1856. Brisbane wanted to provide street lightning too using gas.

The heritage-listed Newstead Gas Ring stands as an iconic witness of Brisbane's gas history. Today, Gasworks is a trendy and vibrant dining and shopping destination.
