Newstead, an inner suburb on the Brisbane River, is three km north-east of central Brisbane. It was named after Newstead House on the south bank of the mouth of Breakfast Creek. Newstead included the locality of Teneriffe between 1975 and 2010, until Teneriffe was again made a separate suburb in 2010.
