Celebrate the beauty of spring & have a picnic on the lawns
Government House Spring Open Day will be held on Saturday, 6th October between 10am-2pm. This is a unique opportunity to walk around the property and admire the spring gardens, have a picnic on the lawns, walk through the public areas of the house and learn about the role of the Governor General. The Governor-General himself, Peter Cosgrove, and Lady Cosgrove will be there to answer any questions. Food vendors will also be there, to buy lunch on the day.
This event has free entry, free parking and there will be a security check at the entrance, with no sharp items permitted.
Saturday, 6th October is a busy day in Canberra, with Parliament House Open Day being held on the same day. There will be a free shuttle running between both events every 15 - 20 minutes. See the Governor General website and Facebook for details.
