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. 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 via email:

Please provide your name, contact details (including a contact telephone number), the name of the organisation for which you volunteer and if you have a day preference. 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.

For further information please contact: Ms Claire Ziepes, Assistant to the Aide on 08 8203 9823
