Newstead House Heritage Precinct - Visit Brisbane


Newstead House Heritage Precinct

191A Breakfast Creek Road, Newstead park, Newstead, Queensland 4006


Newstead House was once the finest home in the colony of Moreton Bay, boasting a reputation for hosting lavish parties, it was considered the place to be – the heart of Brisbane’s social life. Built-in 1846, it is now Brisbane’s oldest standing European residence and tells the story of early colonial life in Brisbane… of ambition, loss and resilience. Operating as a House Museum the grand home is considered the Jewel in the Crown of South East Queensland historic properties and continues to inspire living history in the tradition it was once revered.

Located in Newstead Park with a commanding view over Brisbane River, you can enjoy the stunning surrounds of the Newstead House heritage precinct as you explore the park & enjoy the water views. There are a number of significant memorials located in Newstead Park, including the Lyndon B. Johnson Place in recognition of the United States President’s visit to Brisbane in October 1966.

Newstead House is currently closed due to conservation work.
