Government House was designed in 1835 by British architect Edward Blore and regarded as one of the best examples of gothic revival in Australia.
The State Rooms were decorated in 1879 by Lyon, Cottier & Co. as part of the Sydney International Exhibition. The interior features a collection of colonial furniture, portraiture, and gubernatorial memorabilia.
