Newstead House was once the finest home in the colony of Moreton Bay, boasting a reputation for hosting lavish parties, it was considered the place to be – the heart of Brisbane’s social life. Built in 1846, it is now Brisbane’s oldest standing European residence and tells the story of early colonial life in Brisbane…of ambition, loss and resilience.
