Entry is free and registrations are not required. 

School, community groups and not-for-profit organisations are encouraged to participate in a guided tour through the public rooms of Government House.

Visitors will learn about the Governor’s role and priorities and provide a unique insight into the constitutional, ceremonial and community engagement duties of the Governor.
