The origin of the name New Farm

New Farm: ‘Aboriginal people called the area the Binkin-ba, or place of the land tortoise, and used to catch these freshwater tortoises there in a net or by hand. Then they roasted them on their backs with the carapace serving as a dish. Europeans altered the pronunciation to Pinkenba and gave it to another place. As the name suggests it was developed as a new farm for the convict settlement.’ from australiaforeveryone.com.au
