Newstead House is temporarily CLOSED as a house museum and will not be welcoming guests on our normal public opening days.
NEWSTEAD HOUSE UPDATE:
In October 2019, the Queensland Government announced funding to conserve and protect Newstead House. This project was due to start mid-2020, however, as with many projects throughout Queensland, the COVID-19 event has presented significant challenges, and the conservation project has been unavoidably postponed.
The Newstead House Board will provide ongoing updates over the coming months, and anticipates detailed design work for the project to start shortly.
In the meantime, the Newstead House Board and staff are preparing to re-open Newstead House for events and tours.
As always, safety of staff, volunteers and visitors is a priority, and Newstead House staff are working hard to ensure all the necessary steps are put in place for the upcoming re-opening to make sure everybody who visits Newstead House remains safe.
