Tours and Open Days


Tours of the public rooms of Government House and the Ballroom are offered to schools, community groups, and not-for-profit organisations.

Following the completion of important conservation works, the tour program will be open for bookings early in 2020.

Please stay tuned for updates as they become available.

Open Days

Each year, Government House hosts Open Day events attracting thousands of people from our community to explore Government House and its grounds.

Open Days are a wonderful opportunity for members of the community to visit Government House and tour the beautiful Grounds.

The next Open Day is planned as part of the National Trust’s Australian Heritage Festival in April next year.

Please stay tuned for updates as they become available.

Lunchtimes in the Grounds

The Grounds of Government House are open to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday between 12 noon and 2pm.

Visitors are invited to take a stroll around the beautiful heritage gardens, or sit back and enjoy a picnic lunch.

Occasionally we may be unable to open the Grounds. If you are making a special trip, please contact the Office to check that they will be open.
