Suburb Profile


Newstead is one of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs and sits majestically alongside the Brisbane River. Though it may be small, Newstead is an evolving, upmarket riverside suburb that’s popular with mature couples drawn to the area’s heritage and beautiful historic buildings.

Located just four kilometres south of the Brisbane CBD and flanked by Teneriffe, Bowen Hills, and Fortitude Valley, Newstead holds a proud part of Brisbane’s urban history. Newstead is named after Newstead House, Brisbane’s oldest surviving residence, on the Breakfast Creek bank of the Brisbane River.

Newstead House remains today and is one of Brisbane’s most celebrated heritage-listed sites. Another slice of Brisbane’s history graces the unassuming Newstead; the Breakfast Creek Hotel built in French Renaissance style boasting a colourful history, undoubtedly part of Newstead’s laidback appeal.

Development in recent years has seen Newstead transform into a stylish up-and-coming suburb with immense potential. The redevelopment of Gasworks into an upscale residential and retail precinct means housing and everyday conveniences are never far out of reach. With excellent transport facilities to the CBD, schools close by, and immediate access to the beautiful Brisbane River, inimitable charm and practicality find a perfect balance in this riverside suburb.
