The Newstead House Heritage Precinct is a hidden oasis waiting to be discovered. Featuring lovely manicured gardens, including Brisbane’s greenest lawn you can explore Newstead Park at your leisure taking in the stunning views of Brisbane River. Newstead Park features a number of significant memorials including the first American war memorial built in Australia. If you are visiting with little people why not go on a treasure hunt to find our very own Alice in Wonderland feature? (Clue: it’s  located on the Southern side of Newstead Park.) From Newstead Park you can walk under the Breakfast Creek Bridge underpass, and you will find yourself moments from Breakfast Creek Hotel.

Queensland Government funded a project to conserve and protect Newstead House.
