Government house has an interesting history and it's best left to be told by one of the local City of Perth tour guides. You can't actually access the inside of Government House (unless you're invited), but you can take pictures.

The garden is beautiful, some parts date from 19th century. Nice historic building, fine architecture, friendly guards.

I am pretty sure you can walk the gardens on weekends between certain times, the gardens are massive and meticulous maintained, the Governor is in residence so access is not always available, a beautiful building, you can walk past on the Saint Georges Terrace side and get a great view.

Government House has spectacular gardens which are quite often open for viewing and indeed to eat your own lunch on the lawns or the many sitting areas. Any person interested in horticulture would enjoy a visit. The inside of Government House is probably what you would expect for a residence of this nature. It is lovely to look at and enjoy a piano recital. I count my lucky stars that we live in a country where we are still able to access places like Government House.
