Newstead Park is home to Newstead House; Brisbane’s oldest surviving residence, located on the Breakfast Creek bank of the Brisbane River and within the northern Brisbane suburb of Newstead.
The house was originally built as a small cottage in the Colonial-Georgian style in 1846, then subsequently the cottage was extended and today is painted and furnished in a late Victorian style.
Amongst the grounds is this wonderful, whimsical attraction, right near the river.
Newstead Park is a significant historic park. The park is host to the commemoration of the Battle of the Coral Sea each year in May and as I mentioned before, the playspace features an "Alice through the Looking Glass" theme.
