Government House is situated on Macquarie St in the city overlooking the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Sydney Harbour.
The grounds are are well kept and the trees are timeless.
The castle like sandstone structure is well maintained and the interior id first class and befitting of the Governor General.
We visited for the OAM ceremony and enjoyed the canapés and drinks on the lorn overlooking the harbour.

On man, another amazing old building, just breathtakingly beautiful. Not that I would want to live there but oh so nice. We did not time our visit for the free tour but cruised about checking out what we could from the outside. It is awesome, don't miss it.

Tours go on the half hour and last 45 mins. Very interesting to see and learn about the present and past Governors. Tied this in with the Botanic gardens visit as very close by. Excellent guide.

This must be on your to visit list. The guided tour was excellently presented by a very knowledgeable person, it was unusual as we expected to pay to enter but surprisingly not.
The building for those with an interest in architecture, this is for you.
Make the time, you will be happy with the experience.
