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—12.00 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 follows. Note, it is subject to the possibility that scheduled Open Days may be cancelled or changed at short notice because of operational requirements or bad weather.
