New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Walk the gardens & take a free tour of Government House
Each year, The Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) and Lady Cosgrove host an Open Day at Government House, so the public can enjoy walking around the scenic grounds and take a tour through the stately building. Their gardens will be in full bloom, with Lake Burley Griffin as the backdrop. This year the Open Day will be held on October 7th, between 11am - 2pm.
The Open Day has free entry and there will be food vendors to buy lunch, coffee or a snack to enjoy on the lawns. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring a picnic and relax with family and friends.
There will be a bag search on entry and no sharp implements will be allowed inside.
