The summer residence of South Australia’s early governors, Old Government House, sits in the heart of Belair National Park. The house is an excellent example of Victorian architecture and is set amongst magnificent gardens. It was built on the Government farm as the former summer residence of several early Governors of South Australia.

The cottage is an excellent example of Victorian-style architecture. It is looked after by a dedicated group of volunteers and the Friends of Old Government House in conjunction with the Department for Environment and Water.

You can take a guided tour of the buildings and surrounding heritage gardens. Tours are run by the Friends of old Government house on Sundays by gold coin donation and by appointment.

Open the first and third Sunday of each month and public holidays, from 1 to 4 pm.
