Newstead House sits proudly on the end of the Breakfast Creek hotel, overlooking the Brisbane River. It is Brisbane’s oldest surviving house, and the history behind it is just fascinating.
It was initially the home of Captain John Wickham, and his lovely wife Anna. Newstead House now runs a tour that is hosted by none other than Anna herself!….well an actor playing her.
Anna takes her guests through every nook and cranny of the beautiful old homestead as if she was walking through in the 1800s.
An incredible experience if you would like to know more about one of the founding names of Brisbane.
