#2 of 14 in Things to do in Parramatta
Standing in 200 acres of parkland overlooking historic Parramatta, Old Government House is Australia’s oldest surviving public building. For seven decades, it was the ‘country’ residence of 10 early governors of the colony, including Governor and Mrs Macquarie who, from 1810 to 1821 preferred the clean air and space of rural Parramatta to the unsanitary and crime ridden streets of Sydney Town.

  • 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.
