Old Government House
Old Government house is Australia’s oldest public building. It was situated on 200 acres and used to house 12 early governors of the colony. The house was built in 1799 and is a property of national and international significance because it demonstrates the development of Australian society and how the British Empire expanded in the 18th century.
The house is the first permanent building in Sydney and has been unchanged since 1821. Walking through the front doors is like travelling back to the early 19th century. The fashions and decorations of the house are unchanged.
