Government House is the home of the Governor, the representative of the official Head of State, Queen Elizabeth II. The Victorian building was designed in neo-medieval style and is supposed to resemble old English castles. It is surrounded by a large garden and can only be spotted through some gaps between trees and shrubs.

The grounds are protected by a wall and usually closed. On some days, however, the gardens will be opened to the public for an hour or two around lunchtime. If they are, a sign will be put up on the sidewalk of St George's Terrace.

Address: St George's Terrace
