You can get to Newstead House by a cruise on the river. Lovely gardens surrounding a Lovely old homestead. Not too far from the Breakfast Creek Hotel for lunch?

This charming home is set in beautiful gardens and lawns that lead straight onto the Brisbane River. Inside has beautiful period furniture and servants quarter under the house and it is reported to be haunted. Interesting stories plus wonderful Devonshire teas are a must when you visit. This house is one of Queensland's best historical homes, well worth a visit.

Now do yourself a favour and make time to visit this little gem that has not been destroyed by the call and march of modernisation. Our very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide really made our tour very informative and we found the history most interesting. Situated with wonderful views over the river and set amongst manicured and beautiful grounds, this house... More

Visited again during recent Open House display - run by volunteers & has some authentic furniture etc. One of the earliest remaining examples of housing so close to the city. Beautiful gardens surrounding this house add to the atmosphere & area great place to picnic.

This was a wonderful stately home in Australia - we love to visit houses like this in England but there aren't many in Australia. Its a fascinating piece of history and a lovely house. There was a function on one veranda, but we were taken on a guided tour through the house by a lovely lady who told us a... More

I have to say that the most interesting part of our visit was listening to the stories of the gentleman in the ticket office. Quite educational and still able to visit on a rainy afternoon.

Interesting old house with a lot of history and a great way to see what it was like to live back in the old days. Lots of antiques in every room beautifully decorated.

Looking for something to do on our last day in Brisbane. Found this stately home in TripAdvisor. Go to Adelaide Street, Bus Stop 23. Catch the 300, 302 or 305 bus. Home was well managed and interesting. $9.00 entry was a steal. Awesome local historian showed us around. Check out the bathroom. Impressed by the relative restraint of the owners.... More

We hadn't visited Newstead House for more than 20 years. The displays have been updated since and it remains a great place to see what luxury was like more than 100 years ago. Set in beautiful parklands it's a great way to kill an hour if you're on the way to the airport like we were....
