NEWSTEAD HOUSE UPDATE:
There has been an unavoidable delay in our Newstead House conservation project due to COVID-19. We are currently working on what we may be able to deliver in a COVID-19 compliant way and look forward to updating you soon.
Newstead House remains currently CLOSED.
Newstead House was fortunate to receive State Government funding in 2019 for a major restoration and refurbishment project to ensure the future of this beautiful and iconic landmark.
This work has been unavoidably delayed due to the COVID-19 event.
The good news is that with the delay we will be endeavouring to temporarily re-open Newstead House, as much as possible, to the public, including for events.
Keep up to date on our plans for re-opening dates, events, and any COVID-19 restrictions, by visiting this website.
THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN…
Newstead house is Brisbane’s oldest surviving European 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!
