Fun, light and colour at Gasworks
It's the newest hub in the inner city precinct of Brisbane and it's worth visiting. You will find this place in the suburb of Newstead, which is almost fast becoming the 'instead of New Farm', if that makes sense.

Any night of the week is an enjoyable experience in this new hub, which has been built around the old gasometer structure which provides a special ambience to this wine, dine and shopping corridor. This wonderful structure lights up at night changing colours every few minutes.

For a more specific description of this place, I would say "it's like an outdoor hallway with rooms off to the side where these spaces play the host to wonderful restaurants, cafes and bars.
