The Old Governor’s Mansion in Brisbane is a Victorian building built between 1860 and 1862. It is one of Brisbane’s most famous historical attractions and the best window to understand the early colonial history of Queensland. The old governor’s mansion is not far from the CBD in the city center. Walk along George Street from the city center to the end. It is adjacent to the urban botanical garden and is located on the Garden Corner campus of Queensland University of Technology. If you walk from South Bank Park, you can also reach it through the Lucky Bridge. The Old Governor’s Mansion not only has a long history, but also the place where the famous Australian Laminton cake was invented. This attraction is adjacent to the Botanic Gardens and Queensland University of Technology, and it is completely free to visit. It is a good place for tourists to learn about Brisbane.
