Looking for function venues in Brisbane? Newstead House has always been a location for hosting lavish parties and now you can host one here too! The Harris family, who lived at the property from 1862 for over 20 years, were well known for their entertaining.

Today Newstead House continues this tradition and is available for exclusive hire.
