“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

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.

“Love the gardens and the house is historically interesting if thats your thing.”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

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.
