Convenient Parking near Government House
Government House, Adelaide is not only one of the oldest remaining colonial public buildings in Adelaide but is also the oldest Government House in Australia. The eastern Regency Wing was constructed in 1839–40.
Government House is the home and headquarters of the governor, the representative of the Queen of Australia. The governor once presided over the government of the colony of South Australia. Meetings of the Legislative Council were held in the governor’s sitting room. The granting of responsible government in 1856 reduced the role of the governor to a largely ceremonial one. Once a year Government House opens its door to the public and visitors have the rare opportunity to walk through the magnificent gardens and explore the history of this magnificent building.
