Overview

Old Government House is the the oldest surviving public building in Australia and dates back to 1799 which was extended by Governor Macquarie between 1815 and 1816. Some of the original 18th century joinery, doors and other details still survive. Its interiors have been carefully restored and contain the most important collection of early colonial furniture in Australia. Well worth a visit and more interesting are the Ghost Tours arranged here on Fridays every month. These tours are in addition to the school programs conducted for children and other informative talks and seminars.
