Food trucks, jazz and a picnic by the river
Newstead House is not only Brisbane's oldest surviving home, it also has a highly popular regular date with the food truck favourites from The World Food Markets. As things turned a little crisper at the onset of winter this partnership morphed from a Saturday evening event to a daytime outing on the first Sunday of each month. By The River With Jazz and Food Trucks will next pop up on Sunday 6 August, and you won't want to be anywhere else.

Newstead House is one of Brisbane's most significant cultural and historical landmarks and tourist sites. It sits majestically within Newstead Park with picture postcard views of the Hamilton and Bulimba reaches of the Brisbane River. It's a magical place that began life as a Georgian cottage in 1846, morphed into a stately residence with major renovations in 1867, and is now a museum that is a testament to life in Brisbane in Victorian times.

So what do you get with the marriage of one of Brisbane's grand old ladies with the hip food truck scene? You'll get a combination of Brisbane food truck excellence from a number of popular vendors, amazing views and ambience and smooth jazz as the accompaniment to your friendly daytime picnic in the park. What could be better on a lazy Brisbane summer day?

And the beer-istas on hand for this chilled out event will be the people from Newstead Brewing Co, a local brewing legend. Acoustic jazz will be wafting through the air along with the tantalising smells from food trucks, so your musical enjoyment is guaranteed.

Is this event happening on the 1st Saturday of Feb? Or is it on the 11th of Feb?
The info looks great but we do not wish to turn up from a cruise ship if there is no event happening, we will need a plan B.

Thanks for this - looks like a good event. Note that the marker on the map is wrongly placed. Newstead House is near the water (as the photos and text indicate) in the green patch close to The Breakfast Creek Hotel.
