Newstead house is Brisbane’s oldest surviving 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!
Looking for function venues in Brisbane? Newstead House has always been a location for hosting lavish parties and now you can host one here too! The Harris family, who lived at the property from 1862 for over 20 years, were well known for their entertaining. An affluent lifestyle with lavish entertainment prevailed and Newstead House was for many years the centre of Brisbane’s social life. Today Newstead House continues this tradition and is available for exclusive hire.
From our elegant fountain courtyard, to wide verandas with river views, Newstead House has many wonderful settings for your event.
