Brisbane certainly isn't short of sublime parks to while away the days in and Newstead Park is definitely up there on the list. With sweeping views of the brown snake, palm trees and a gorgeous rotunda, you won't be hard-pressed to find a nice spot to lay your picnic blanket out on.

While it's not a wet area (so you can't knock back any beers), the park features an Alice Through the Looking Glass-themed playground, heaps of lawn space and a river walk that stretches far in both directions — basically, there's plenty of room for activities that don't involve rosé.

If grazing in one spot all day is not your thing, the spacious and breezy area is also home to Newstead House, Brisbane's oldest surviving residence. The heritage-listed European building runs as a museum and events space (by appointment only at the moment) making it a perfect historic interlude to picnicking.
