Sunday by the River

Picnicking, jazz and food trucks come to Newstead House.

Spring is about to hit, and that means having a picnic is one of the best things you can do in Brisbane. The sun is almost always out, the grass is typically quite the shade of green and we've got plenty of parks just begging for you to visit.

Combine all of the above with a historic site, food trucks and jazz and you have Newstead House's Sunday by the River. Returning not only for another weekend gathering, but for Father's Day no less, it comes from the folks at the Food Truck Collective — and it'll take over the venue's stunning lawn from 10am on Sunday, September 2.

Sunday by the River is the chilled kind of daytime hangout we all need every now and then (or maybe even more often), so bring your best picnic blanket, your dad, your mates and some cash for something to eat, and let the event take care of the rest. There'll be live jazz tunes to set the mood; food from King of the Wings, Micasa, Rolls Pho Mi and more; and beers from Newstead Brewing Co. And, because a Sunday picnic is for everyone, doggos are welcome.
