Government House is delighted to announce free guided tours of the estate will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the Queensland school holidays.
Bring the children along and go behind-the-scenes of Queensland’s premier heritage-listed home.
You will discover the rich history of the estate – including visiting the State Dining Room where The Queen has dined – while learning more about the Governor’s role. You might even get to meet His Excellency and Gavel, Vice-Regal Dog.
Tours last about 90 minutes and include complimentary light refreshments. Facemasks are required. Tours run Wednesdays and Thursdays over the Queensland school holidays, up until 15 April 2021.
