To book this park for a special event, follow these steps:

Impacts due to works in 2020

In 2020, Newstead House will undergo an extensive restoration and renovation program. To maintain safety during works, Council will close Newstead House and sections of Newstead Park. This may include closure of the main entrance and road into Newstead Park.

Newstead Park will remain open for event bookings, however works may impact on visual amenity and access. Customers will be advised of the works and potential impacts during the booking process.

Park bookings

Bookings only apply to the designated site you choose in the park and to the use of any facilities in that designated site such as a rotunda or power (if available). You cannot book barbecues, shelters (other than rotundas marked) or playgrounds for your specific use, though your group is free to share these facilities with other park visitors. Power points may have different phases (i.e. operate on different voltages), so it is advisable to check your electronic equipment's compatibility before your event. No marquees.

In some parks, as well as the designated site/s, there may be some alternative bookable areas of the park. Please submit an application and you will be contacted regarding the suitability of the park for the event, availability and fees.
