Government House Open Day

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Enjoy the beauty and charm of Government House, the Northern Territory�s earliest and most significant government building.

The Administrator of the Northern Territory invites you to enjoy the beauty and charm of Government House and its tropical gardens during its annual Open Day.

Explore Government House, learn about its history and the role of the Administrator, view historical photographs and information displays, stroll through the 1.3 hectare tropical gardens, and chat to staff and our team of horticulturists.

Live music, Devonshire tea and sausage sizzle available. Limited wheelchair access to the garden.

Government House was first completed on its site overlooking Darwin Harbour in 1871, and has endured cyclones, earthquakes, enemy bomb raids and frequent infestations of white ants. With the stunning tropical gardens as a fitting backdrop, the gracious rooms and tiled terrace of Government House are used by the Administrator to host official functions.
