Government House is one of Perth’s most magnificent properties. Built in 1863 and set in 3.2 hectares of beautiful gardens just off St. Georges Terrace in the city, both the buildings and gardens are listed on the State’s heritage register. This magnificent House and gardens have been the home of successive Governors of Western Australia since 1863. Currently in residence is the thirty-second Governor of Western Australia, Kerry Sanderson, who is the first woman to hold the position.
