What people are saying:

Three volunteers greeted our group at the Government House. They accompanied us into the house for morning tea and showed us a videotape, which gave us an in-depth understanding of the history of the house. Then, we visited the house and garden, and about two hours before leaving, then met with the Governor.

    Free to see

    Lovely restoration - great photo ops - rich history. We enjoyed our time looking around, though only needed around 20mins or so. Worth a trip if you are in the area, but I wouldn’t travel a long dis...

    Beautiful buildings and a rich history

    You never never know, if you never never go! Have been a Brisbane boy for much of my life but had never visited this treasure. We missed the guided tour (which from all accounts is fantastic) but even...
