Unique Family Santa Photos with Aussie History
Family fun with unique Santa photos on Sunday 10 December

Come along to Old Government House on Sunday 10 December from 11am to 1pm, when Santa will be in the Macquarie Cellar ready for your Christmas family photos. Bring the kids to this unique and historic place and take heaps of free photos.

Macquarie Cellar is rarely open to the public, so what a wonderful opportunity to see some of Australia's history. This event is made possible by the Friends of Old Government House and Experiment Farm Cottage, who would appreciate a gold coin donation to continue their valuable work in preserving our history.

Old Government House Parramatta is maintained with funds raised by The Friends of Old Government House.

Old Government House is now on the World Heritage Register as a significant historical convict site, one of only 11 in the world. This was possible with thanks to the work of The Friends of Old Government House & Experiment Farm Cottage. Formed as a fundraising body they hold events such as Santa in the Cellar, ghost night tours, lectures and exhibitions. Funds raised help with maintenance of the property.

There are many events held throughout the year at Old Government House. Check the website for more details.

So grab the kids and come along to see Santa in a unique, historical setting. Everyone will learn about our history and your Santa photos for Christmas 2017 will be one of a kind.
