Take in an important piece of Brisbane history at Newstead House. The city's oldest surviving home has occupied its spot on the Breakfast Creek bank of the Brisbane River since 1846. Tour the luxurious, Victorian-furnished rooms and relax on the wide verandahs of this Colonial Georgian cottage. The site offers picnic facilities, and the area down by the river provides particularly pleasant al fresco dining beneath shady trees.
