This is a great location to step back in time and appreciate early Australia history. A large amount of history to see its easy to visit multiple times.

Nice bit of colonial history set in Parramatta Park. Lots of other pieces of early Sydney town also in Parramatta and worth a day trip for tourists and locals. Visit and learn and take lunch or high tea at the restaurant. Do a round trip...More

Fantastic tour, learn so much about Australian early history. Tour guides are so knowledgeable and such interesting people. And you get supper too made by the volunteers. Wow! Everyone proud to call Australia home should visit Old Government House.
