Newstead House, in Newstead Park, was built by Brisbane's first architect and builder Andrew Petrie for fellow Scottish settler Patrick Leslie in 1846 on the Breakfast Creek bank of the Brisbane River, in the Brisbane suburb of Newstead, in Queensland, Australia. Patrick Leslie was the first squatter on the Darling Downs, and the first person to buy land in Warwick, Queensland.
