As Government House is the private residence of the Governor's family, and the formal rooms are constantly used for official functions, it is not routinely open to the public.
However, the Governor has extended an invitation to those who are community volunteers to enjoy a tour through the public rooms. Such tours are held on the second Monday of each month from 10.30 - 11.30 a.m. These tours are intended to acknowledge the vital contribution made by volunteers to our community, and are provided by Government House volunteer guides.
Bookings are essential -telephone 8203 9823. Please provide your name, contact details (in case of cancellation) and the name of the organisation for which you volunteer. Numbers are limited to 20 per tour (10 per organisation per tour). Limited on-site parking is available.
Please note: the tour may not proceed if there are insufficient numbers.
