We have been fortunate to receive substantial funding from the State Government for the restoration and refurbishment of Newstead House. This is long overdue and ensures the future of our beautiful and iconic landmark.  This work is due to start in August 2020, and as a result, we will not be reopening our doors until after the completion of the restoration project in  2021. 

This is an exciting moment in time for Newstead House,  Brisbane’s oldest standing residence and we look forward to sharing the journey with you!

Newstead House is open to the general public on the following days:

Friday – 10am – 2pm
Saturday – 10am – 2pm
Sunday – 10am – 4pm

On opening days we offer a daily tour at 11.30am which is included in your entry price.   Our passionate guides will take you on an hour long exploration of Newstead House looking at our history, the collection and the people who have lived in our beautiful home.

Monday – Thursday by prior arrangement 

Newstead House will open for pre arranged group visits or education programs.   If you would like to discuss visiting Newstead House during these times please contact us on 07 3216 1846 to arrange or email [email protected]
