More information about Old Government House

Designed by Government Architect, Charles Tiffin and built by Joshua Jeays, using the finest locally-sourced sandstone, porphyry, red cedar and hoop pine, OGH served as the official state office, and the private residence of Queensland’s first eleven Governors, and their families and staff. Today, this beautiful building provides us with a fascinating insight into early colonial life in Queensland, while a range of displays and interactive exhibits further enhance the visitor experience.
