Calling all Little Historians, we have a day of fun just for you! Dress up and bring your imagination to Newstead House as you join in the festivities of the annual LITTLE HISTORIANS FESTIVAL. Set in the beautiful grounds of Newstead House, located minutes from the CBD The Little Historians Festival is a magical opportunity for all budding historians to experience life in early colonial days.

Get your fingers dirty as you work in Kate’s garden, help Mrs Fletcher in the kitchen but be careful not to misbehave she doesn’t like any shenanigans, or give some elbow grease at our wash day wonders as you discover another world. What can you find in our archaeological DIG? Enjoy heritage games on the green, crafts, and so much more.

Make a day of it and bring a picnic to Newstead Park. This event is perfect for families with children aged 5 – 12, though all ages welcome.
Together you can discover how we lived in early colonial days – pre-electricity and enjoy the grace and charm of Brisbane’s oldest surviving residence, Newstead House.

Great FUN for the whole FAMILY
