Það sem verður gert

We are going to take a walk from the historic woolstores of Teneriffe through the commercial heart of Newstead to explore this part of the Urban Renewal project in Brisbane. We shall see the woolstores and industrial buildings, now converted to businesses, shops, cafes and apartments, and spot the reminders of this area's industrial and commercial past.
Along the way, learn about the events and factors that influenced and informed the process of guiding and informing the renewal of the area. Put yourself in the role of a civic leader, deciding how the area could and should continue to develop. What will be the legacy from today that captures the interest of tomorrow's citizens?
Other things to note
Photo opportunities will be many and varied

I have lived and worked in Teneriffe and Newstead for over fifteen years. I am passionate about the area and its rich history. In my professional life I am a Town Planner and Development Consultant with over thirty years experience - primarily in the field of Urban Regeneration. I was heavily involved in the regeneration of the Teneriffe and Newstead areas as part of my job with Urban Renewal Brisbane for over five years. Nowadays I am a self-employed town planning consultant, and the President of the Teneriffe Progress Association, a local community group. And I am an Airbnb host, too.

Uncover Urban Renewal in Newstead with Ben as our guide was super interesting. We live in Brisbane and were pleasantly surprised to see and hear about the urban renewal going on in Newstead - especially that it commenced not all that long ago ! When we have out of town visitors again I will definitely recommend that they join Ben in Newstead to learn and see how a largely unappealing area can transform into a vibrant very appealing village community :-) I am already recommending my fellow QLDers to check it out.

I was very pleasantly surprised that there was so much interesting history for this relatively ‘young’ small town. As a Brit, as is Ben, it was also interesting to refer to numerous comparisons. A great tour and very pleasant company.

Ben was an extremely nice host. Ben's extensive knowledge about Brisbane's history around the Teneriffe area made the tour quite enjoyable and informative . The additional information Ben could share due to his professional career history also made it a unique tour. The walk was easy for any fitness level even though we did the tour in the middle of a hot summers day. Thanks for a lovely tour Ben!

Ben is a great guide. Passionate, generous and most knowledgeable about the history of Brisbane and furthermore about regeneration of the classic old wool stores, Teneriffe and the renewed ex-industrial city of Newstead. I highly recommend the tour to anyone keen on learning, from a first-hands-on local, about the history of the wool industry of Australia and New Zealand, urban regeneration, not to mention architecture. Ben’s unique tour will give you the keys to unlock and read the between layers of Brisbane’s history and development.
