Bowls by the River at Merthyr Bowlo

Go for a cruisy roll along the river with a barbecue to boot.

Since day one in 1941, bad times at the Merthyr Bowls Club have never existed. You'll have a crackerjack of a day no matter what — whether you're taking to the green overlooking the river, sitting on the front deck admiring the view, or enjoying a meaty (or vego) barbecue. Good times are guaranteed.

Brisbane might have plenty of places for a leisurely bowl, but Merthyr has remained a favourite for over 75 years. Here, it's all location, location, location with that view, that breeze and those post-game wanders through New Farm Park. Plus, even if you don't feel like getting barefoot and bowling up a storm, the chill vibes and tasty barbecue make Merthyr a perfect hangout. On Fridays, expect to keep the good times rolling until midnight.
