Government House and La Trobe's Cottage Tour

Guided tours of Government House from La Trobe's Cottage have returned.

The tours provide a tangible link between the pre-gold rush and Marvellous Melbourne, giving a fascinating insight into the contract between the two properties and the eras they represent.

Although still a working residence today, Government House tours may include the grand State Rooms, the Billiard Room and a visit 'below stairs' to the old kitchens and mews.

Tours run most Mondays and Thursdays at 10am and are only available to groups of 10 or more people.
Unfortunately individuals wanting to join booked group tours cannot do so.

Bookings essential.

To book please contact our Bookings Office on 03 9656 9804 or email bookings@nattrust.com.au

Please note: As Government House is a working residence and a fully operational building, the Office of the Governor reserves the right to reschedule or cancel tours.

Names are to be provided of all guests attending and photo ID is required on the day.
