The gardens are open from 12-00 till 14:00 on some days always best to check on the website. Grab some lunch and take it in with you. Beautifully appointed gardens not crowded when I went. Sit under a tree and relax. Well worth a walk around and a sit.

When Government House is open it is a nice place to spend a day. The large well maintained grounds allow for plenty of wondering around exploring and the House itself is an interesting peek into the history of WA, while still being a part of its future. A good day out for both visitors and locals alike.

Well worth a visit whilst in Perth. Lots of lovely seats to sit in and enjoy the gardens. The jacarandas were out whilst we were there, one of my favourite trees, the scent was heavenly. Don't forget to see the sculptures just outside of the kangaroos.

The gardens are open to the public 3 days a week between 12 - 2pm. The gardens are small to medium size with a lovely pond at the back of the property, along with benches to sit and read, enjoy your lunch and the gardens. Try to get a spot in the sun in winter as it's cool in the... More

Attended the Royal Perth Yacht Club's Sesquicentennial Ball, and the ballroom was perfect for the 150 guests. Built in 1890 as an addition to Government House, it really is the best venue of its kind in Perth.
