Been there for a couple of functions. IT really is a beautiful venue with lots of character. It gives an event a sense of grandeur.

When open to the public, a walk through the Government House and surrounding gardens is always an excellent - and FREE - way to get closer to the early settlement British influence on Perth and Western Australia. It can be very busy so on Open Days, so arrive early or towards the end of the open times to reduce crowding.... More

Agree with Natasha's view, big prime real estate where the public is not allowed and can only view from outside. What a waste of Taxpayer's Money. I'd love to Visit this place.

The grounds of Government House are lovely to view and the inside of Government House is a trip back to the past. There are many state rooms with pictures and wonderful furnishings for people to enjoy. Well work a stroll sometime

Too many governers, not enough plebs left to govern. Government House is stupid. It's grounds etc are not even open to the public and it takes up acres of prime real estate in our CBD!

Government House is well worth a visit, particularly if you have children. The gardens are spectacular and the ballroom divine. It is a beautiful reminder of history and that we can do things well in Perth.

As per title, Loved the gardens myself. Most people like the inside too, and I can see why, just not me. I was doubly fortunate to have a guide and the history of the building/ site is very interesting. The cellars were fully booked up and we couldn't get in, speaks for itself I guess. Recommended.
