Barefoot and bowls on new farm green


What is it?

A Barefoot Bowls event is a great social activity for family and corporate groups, that can be relaxing and appealing to people of all ages. Bowls is a relatively low impact sport and this allows for people of all ages to be included. This great version of bowls has changed the face of lawn bowls as well as bowls clubs and New Farm Bowls Club is a leading venue for Barefoot Bowls.

We offer:

  • A fantastic centrally located venue with easy access and parking. Bus and City Cat on our doorstep.

  • A newly renovated Clubhouse with excellent bar and kitchen facilities.

  • Outdoor alfresco shaded seating and a great casual and relaxed atmosphere and 12 bowling rinks.  We have two hour booking availability but can customise the booking to suit individual requests.

  • Indoor seating and dining facilities that can accommodate over 100 people. Enjoy a meal & bowling or come in just for a meal – lunch and dinner (Tuesday – Sunday)

Family & Children

New Farm Bowls Club is family friendly and welcomes children bowlers of 11 years and up. Children must be supervised at ALL times, and cannot leave the booked area without a parent or guardian. This includes going to the bathroom, bar area, and gaming room.
Alcohol will not be served to minors and proof of age will be asked for if necessary (failure to prove proof of age will result in refusal of service).
Children are not permitted on the green unless they are playing bowls with a supervised adult. These rules are strict, and staff are constantly monitoring these areas. As we are a licensed venue and located in a residential area, noise must be kept to a minimum.

We'll show you what to do will give you the run down on the game of bowls beforehand and be available during your play.

Corporate & Business

Corporate groups can take advantage of the easy access from the City – we're only a stones throw from the CBD and Fortitude Valley.  Come by bus, ferry, car or scooter – absolutely no parking hassles. Corporate barefoot bowls is a very popular way for companies to encourage good working relationships and team building.
