Newstead House - Visit Brisbane


Newstead House

Breakfast Creek Road, Newstead Park, Newstead, Queensland 4006


Discover the layers of Brisbane’s oldest surviving residence, Newstead House. Built in 1846, the home is now part of the living history of Brisbane, and is open as a house museum for the public to enjoy.

The home evolved from a simple Colonial Georgian cottage into the quintessential homestead of today – a style of architecture that draws as its inspiration the bungalow found on the Indian sub-continent.

The house sits within Newstead Park, a piece of land on a bend of the Brisbane River, giving it sweeping views of Hamilton and Bulimba.

From May 1932, the Historical Society of Queensland occupied the house establishing a museum. In 1939 a trust was established for the management of the house. Now Newstead House is an established house museum, decorated and furnished to reflect the late Victorian period and is a significant part of Brisbane history.

Newstead House is open Friday-Sunday. Entry includes a guided tour at 11.30am.
