Newstead House Tours

Built in 1846 for Scottish settlers Patrick and Catherine Leslie, Newstead House is Brisbane's oldest colonial residence and remains one of its most renowned heritage properties. Set on the banks of the Brisbane River, the historic home is now a house museum, beautifully recreated in late Victorian style.

Visitors can step back in time as they explore Newstead House, admiring the vast collection of period furnishings and marvelling over unique artefacts like a signal cannon, Sir Thomas Brisbane’s pipe and a model of the HMS Beagle ship sailed by Royal Navy captain John Wickham, a former resident. The house also hosts a number of special events and educational programs including the chance to experience Victorian-style cooking, washing and games.

Practical Info

Newstead House is located in Newstead Park in north Brisbane and is open Friday and Sunday from 9am-5pm; Saturday from 9am to 1pm; and Monday to Thursday by appointment only. Admission is AU$9 for adults and AU$6 for children.
