Once used as the official residence of the Governor of Australia, this is also one of Sydney's history and culture. Don't miss it when you come to Sydney. Close to the Sydney Opera House, a very old building. Go up by walking stairs. You can take a look if you have time.
Sydney was the first colony established by European colonists in Australia, and Australia's first Governor's Palace was built in Sydney. The ruins of the First Governor’s Mansion are located in the front square at the northern end of the Sydney Museum on Phillip Street and Bridge Street. The First Governor’s Mansion lasted from 1788 to 1945. DCM Architects did not include the remaining foundations of the Governor’s Mansion along Bridge Street in the interior of the museum. Instead, they left them on the periphery of the museum as open exhibits. At the same time, the granite paving used The plane is restored. In this way, the remaining foundation can be easily distinguished by people. The restored plane is white granite, and the other parts are black granite. The paving of the square can be removed at any time to reveal the remains below.
In 1816, the then Governor of Australia planned to build a new Government House, but it was not built until 1845, and the new Government House building completed in 1845 was the Government House in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
Australia became independent in 1901 and the parliament was established in Melbourne. The Governor of Australia rarely used this official residence. After that, the state government took back the castle as the official residence of the Governor of New South Wales, also known as the Governor's Mansion, but it was the Governor's Mansion of New South Wales. It was not until 1996 that the Governor’s Office moved out of here, and it began to open to the public, and it has now become one of Sydney’s important tourist attractions.
The once beautiful colonial government residence is now part of the historical relics of Australian colonialism. After repairs, the Governor's House still maintains its original appearance more than a century ago. The Governor's House, Elizabeth Farm and Experimental Farm have witnessed the beginning of Australian history.
The designer of the Governor’s Mansion is the queen designer of King William IV of England. He has participated in the design of Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. Therefore, the interior decoration of the Governor’s Mansion is entirely British, with conference halls, ballrooms, study rooms, dining rooms, and living rooms. Wait, there are portraits of previous governors hung on the walls around the hall, and all the windows are bulletproof.
