Old Government House

A UNESCO World Heritage Site

Old Government House is the oldest surviving public building in Australia – and one of the 11 Australian Convict Sites listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Register.

The building played a significant administrative role during the convict era. It was also the ‘country residence’ of the first ten Governors of New South Wales. 

Today, this elegant Georgian house in the heart of Parramatta Park is open to the public as a museum. It is managed by the National Trust of Australia (NSW). 

Use the Pitt Street entrance when visiting Old Government House.

Guided tours

Old Government House is open for guided tours Tuesday to Sunday and on some public holidays, between 10am and 4pm. It is closed on Mondays, Good Friday, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
