Event description

Description

Government House, also known as Fernberg, is Queensland's premier heritage home and the working residence of the Queensland Governor.

Take a guided tour of the House, including the stately Dining Room, Drawing Room, Investiture Room and Small Sitting Room, and enjoy the extensive art collection on display, including works on loan from the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art and the Royal Collection Trust.

From the original villa built for German-born merchant Johann Heussler in 1865 to today’s contemporary Government House, the story of Fernberg is inextricably linked to the history and people of Queensland.

The tour takes about 40 minutes and participants should arrive 15 minutes prior to commencement via 168 Fernberg Road, Paddington. Limited parking is available on-site and adults are required to produce photo ID.

The tour includes about 50 stairs. If you have mobility issues, please phone (07) 3858 5750 before booking. Limited photography is permitted upon staff direction. No backpacks or large handbags are to be taken into the House.
