A museum and the NSW Governors reception hall
The Government House was designed by Edward Blore, British architect who designed Buckingham Palace. It is located just south of another architectural masterpiece, the Sydney Opera House. Once it was the residence of New South Wales Governors, now it serves as an official reception area and museum.
The Government House is currently managed by the Historic Houses Trust of New South Wales. Visitors can tour this building four days a week. It is occasionally closed to the public for vice-regal ceremonies, dinners and receptions. Special events open to the public, including cultural and community programs, are held here as well.
