The historic place is located in Newstead Park Cnr Breakfast Creek Rd & Newstead Ave ( opposite the Original Dello Mano kitchen at Breakfast Creek Wharf) and is open to public. Rich in history background the "Newstead House" is now a house museum for everyone to enjoy. It is managed by the Brisbane City Council. The Newstead House’s official website gives this indication of what to expect with your visit , "At first glance, the collections on display at Newstead House may appear bewildering. This is because the fashion for interior design and furnishings during the Victorian Era was very different to modern day fashions."
