Government House

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Government House is one of Perth’s most magnificent properties, located right in the centre of the city. With over three hectares of beautiful gardens, you could lose yourself amongst the abundant birdlife and plant species, hidden away in the heart of the commercial district.

Built in 1863 Government House is one of the key heritage places in Western Australia. The Government House Ballroom is a popular music venue featuring the best international, Australian and local artists in a regular concert series. The grounds are also used for prestigious State and community functions.

The Governor hosts open days three or four times each year where you have the rare opportunity to tour through the public rooms of the house, picnic in the gardens or simply enjoy the entertainment in the ballroom or the grounds.

The gardens are open to the public most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12 noon to 2pm. It is best to call on the day to check if they are open.
