When the weather is warm in Brisbane, having a picnic is one of the best things that you can do. Given that sun is almost always out, that's most of the time — and, if you're looking for a shady spot to relax, this city of ours boasts plenty of inviting grass just begging for you to laze around on.
Combine all of the above with a historic site, pop-up bars and jazz and you have Newstead House's Parkside Sundays series. It takes over the venue's stunning lawn from 12–7pm monthly, with the next event happening on Sunday, December 8.
The chilled kind of daytime hangout we all need every now and then (or maybe even more often), it's the type of event to bring your best picnic blanket to, plus your mates and some cash for something to eat and drink — and then let the event take care of the rest. There'll be live jazz tunes to set the mood, a range of food and plenty to sip.
