  • Had a wonderful time, thank you for our brilliant guide - Peter - who really bring the house to life, he is once of those gifted story tellers who makes history so much fun, he will transport you through times each time you step into another room. I've learnt so much and I wish the tour goes on forever! I'm a Parramatta local who used to walk pass the house and know nothing about it but from today, Parramatta will never be the same again. If you are locals, I'm highly recommended visiting all of the national trust properties and attending their brilliant tours and you will discover that you are living in Australian history goldmine.
  • The visit was very interesting. We learned a lot about Australian history and our guide Richard was very knowledgeable and fun.
  • 1799 Old Government House Parramatta - Well worth the tour and to have high tea. A delicious location for a wedding.
  • Very nice place for events
  • It was a great experience. The real highlight was tour guide Kevin who gave a great insight into the history of the people and government. Our tour lasted almost 2 hrs but this time went so quick. Thank you Kevin for the friendly and informative tour.
