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.

Originally the formed part of the land purchased by Patrick Leslie in 1845 and it was here that he built Newstead House.

What a cool theme! Will have to check out the rest of the park, or maybe you could post some more photos. This one is awesome.
