About this event

Members-only Viewing - A Magical Victorian Christmas

Kick off the festive season with an exclusive members only viewing of Old Government House dressed for Christmas.

Experience the house as you have never seen it before, dressed in Victorian-style Christmas splendour. With the shutters closed to keep out the summer heat, a traditional wintery wonderland will come to life as the darkened rooms and period furniture are lit by candlelight. Guided by the sound of traditional Christmas carols coming from the drawing room, discover the dining table set for Christmas dinner, stockings hung by the fireplace and the preparations for Christmas pudding and gingerbread underway in the kitchen. Enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbles while you wander through the Christmas greenery, paper snowflake walkway, or take a photo beside our traditional Christmas tree.

Afterwards, enjoy Christmas-inspired canapes in the courtyard in the warm evening light. Be sure to leave some time to explore the shop too as it will be stocked with all sorts of gift ideas and goodies to help you get your Christmas shopping underway.

This is a special evening event for current members of the National Trust. Please bring along your membership card to present upon arrival.

This event is only suitable for those aged 18 and over. Proof of ID may be requested for those wanting to participate in the free glass of sparkling wine offer. For any dietary requirements, please contact the property at ogh@nationaltrust.com.au or on (02) 9635 8149. Please note that the upstairs exhibition space will be closed during this event.
