For those of us living in or visiting Perth, here’s a chance to see inside Government House. His Excellency the Governor, Dr Ken Michael AC and Mrs Julie Michael are hosting an Open Day and invite members of the public to explore and experience part of the cultural heritage of Western Australia. The public rooms of Government House, the Ballroom and the Gardens will be open to the public on Friday 29 May 2009 between 11.00 am and 2.30 pm.
If you can’t make the open day you can do a virtual visit using the State Library’s pictorial collection! We also have a wealth of information regarding Government house, it’s residents, and place in Western Australia’s history – check our catalogue for more!
