There are many buildings in Sydney that hold testimony to the city’s political history. One such building is the Government House, located in the Domain. This house overlooks the Royal Botanic Gardens and Sydney Opera House, and serves as an example of a Gothic Revival building in New South Wales. Inside the Government House, you will get to see an outstanding collection of 19th and 20th century furnishings and decoration housed on the ground floor.
As you visit the upstairs rooms, the guided tours will tell you that they have been once used as the private quarters for the Governor, Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal family and visiting heads of State.
