Newstead House is proud to deliver in partnership with Moreton Bay Environment Education Centre, THE WAR YEARS education program between Monday 11 March – Wednesday 20 March 2019. We welcome year ten students of South East Queensland to our precinct to learn about this very important part of Brisbane and Newstead House’s history. During this period Newstead House will be CLOSED to the public Friday 15 March 2019. This wonderful education program is delivered as a theatre experience, and as such Newstead House is the stage. We will be open to the public Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March, however entry will be by donation, as a number of rooms are reinterpreted for the education program. We thank you for your patience and look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you to Newstead House.
THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN…
Newstead house is Brisbane’s oldest surviving home, established in 1846. This iconic landmark has evolved from a simple Georgian cottage into a grand residence following significant renovations and extensions in 1867. The house occupies a commanding position within Newstead Park, with sweeping views of the Hamilton and Bulimba reaches of the Brisbane River. Newstead House is an established house museum, decorated and furnished to reflect the late Victorian period and is a significant part of Brisbane history. We welcome you to embrace and experience this premier heritage property!
