Government House is the most beautiful building in the city. They are host to many great festivals throughout the year. In the summer months they offer free tours. A great way to cool off and get a taste of history.

A nicely restored old building now used as the residence of the Lieutenant Governor but also open for public viewing. Also used by many community organisations for meetings and receptions. It also contains many interesting artifacts and art works.
