Newton-Brown was born in Hawthorn and is a long term resident of Prahran. He graduated with a degrees in Law and Arts from Monash University in 1991. Prior to his election, he worked as a barrister, specialising in planning law as well as running a series of small businesses—including the first Yarra River water taxi service, BBQ Boats and a café on an island under the Southgate footbridge. He was elected the youngest ever Deputy Lord Mayor of Melbourne in 1999 at 32 years of age.
Newton-Brown stood for the seat of Prahran in 2006 but was unsuccessful. At the 2010 Victorian election, he ran a high-profile campaign and defeated two-term Labor Party member, Tony Lupton. He lost the seat at the 2014 Victorian election to the Greens candidate Sam Hibbins. It was only the second Victorian Lower House seat to be won by the Greens.
