Her Excellency the Honourable Barbara Baker AC, Governor of Tasmania, warmly invites members of the public to book tickets to attend a guided tour of either the Estate Gardens or the State Rooms of Government House.  This significant site has been home to Tasmania’s Governors since 1858, a fine example of an early Victorian country house in neo-Gothic style and one of the largest of its type in Australia. Set on a grand estate on 15 hectares overlooking Hobart and the Derwent River, Government House is one of the great historical Vice‑Regal residences.

Tours will allow you to experience the grandeur of the Government House State Rooms.  Fine silverware, crystal chandeliers, heritage European and early colonial and imported furniture and amazing art works are just some of the attractions.

Parking will be available outside of the grounds on the day but please phone (03) 6234 2611 if you would like to request special access by vehicle for elderly or disabled visitors.

Guided Tour Times: 9.30 am, 10.30 am, 11.30 am, 12.30 pm, 1.30 pm, 2.30 pm and 3.30 pm
