NEWSTEAD

NEWSTEAD Suburb Profile

With its industrial heritage and recently refurbished urban precincts, Newstead has an edgy appeal that makes it one of Brisbane’s most sought-after suburbs. Within arm’s reach of the city and neighbouring popular suburbs, Newstead offers a youthful suburban lifestyle in a convenient inner-north location.

You'll love

The slightly offbeat, industrial feel with its unique urban renewal sites and riverside location.

The Drawbacks

With the influx of apartments and new population, the local amenities are put under some pressure.

Lifestyle

This neighbourhood is a buzzing industrial hub, with an eclectic mix of small-scale businesses, local breweries and retail outlets. With the local amenities buzzing all week long, locals love the unique offering of boutique bars, pubs and restaurants nestled amongst the grungy factories-come-fitness studios.

The Gasworks precinct serves as the central hub of the suburb, boasting a generous offering of fresh produce, cafés and restaurants. The heritage-listed Gasometer has been repurposed as part of an urban renewal project, which serves as a local picnic spot and venue for community events.

With its close proximity to Brisbane’s CBD and popular neighbours Teneriffe and New Farm within arm’s reach, Newstead is a convenient location. A pathway wraps along the river creating a pedestrian link from Newstead Park through to New Farm Park – a favourite running and cycling track for the locals. 

Newstead has a similar food culture to its neighbours, boasting a wide range of popular eateries, cafés and bakeries for the community to choose from. Popular James Street precinct in Fortitude Valley is nearby.

The local CityCat ferry links Newstead with neighbouring suburbs New Farm and Bulimba, and the outer riverside Brisbane areas such as Hamilton’s popular Portside Precinct.

Locals love

The Gasworks Precinct is Newstead’s commercial, retail and dining heart – fresh produce, restaurants and cafés. The facilities surround the heritage listed Gasometer, which has been transformed into public green space.


Nestled in refurbished industrial buildings, boutique bars, local breweries and live music venues keep the locals loyal to this hip pocket of the inner north.

Newstead boasts fitness centres and some of Brisbane’s best yoga and cross fit studios, along with a picturesque walking path that winds along the Brisbane river.

Property

Newstead has an extensive range of new apartments, with some boasting river views and an ideal locality next to the Gasworks precinct.

In the quieter tree-lined streets towards Newstead park, traditional Queenslanders sit side by side with modern freestanding homes with lush gardens.
