Government House Charity 'Open Days'

Friday, August 10, 2018



Norfolk Island’s historic Government House - built in 1829 and handsomely restored - is generally not open to the public. However, on a number of occasions each year, its formal rooms are open for the afternoon - 1.00 pm to 3.30 pm - for public inspection.

This is to allow opportunities for people to visit and gain an appreciation of Government House’s place in the rich history of Norfolk Island as well as to raise funds for Norfolk Island’s volunteer charity and service organisations.

The Government House Open Day program is subject to the possibility that scheduled Open Days may be cancelled or changed at short notice because of operational requirements or bad weather such as when it is wet or windy. Visitors must be advised of this fact.

The Government House Open Day Program will be reviewed at the end of the 2019/2020 financial year.

The program for community organisations which will benefit from the entry charge of $15 per adult (children under 15 years of age, and accompanied by an adult, are free) is as follows:-
