  • Government House
    First to Review

    Government House is located in Sydney, Australia alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens, overlooking Sydney Harbour, just south of the Sydney Opera House. The property is owned by Queen Elizabeth II and is the official residence of the Governor of New South Wales (except for two breif periods). Government House, with its setting on Sydney Harbour, has a garden area of 5 hectares and is located south of the Sydney Opera House, overlooking Farm Cove. It was designed in a romantic Gothic revival style—castellated, crenellated, turreted and is decorated with oil portraits and the coats of arms of its successive occupants.
    As well as hosting Vice-Regal, state government and charitable events, Government House is also used for a busy program of public events including concerts, exhibitions, festivals, lectures, specialist study days, symposia, performances and artist-in-residence programs.
    Each year nearly 25,000 people attend free education programs, booked groups and free guided tours. The popular guided tours enable people to connect with the rich history of NSW, Vice-Regal use of the house and the contemporary relevance of the Governors.
