Government House Information

Government House, on The Esplanade in Darwin City, is the earliest and most significant government building in the Northern Territory. It is associated with the formal representation of the South Australian colonial administration and subsequent forms of government of the Northern Territory.

The location and stone construction of Government House provide symbolic representation of the power of the colonial government, and the subsequent vice-regal function. The building served as the focal point of social and government development in the Northern Territory.

Government House is open to the public only on certain specified days during the year, at the Administrator's discretion.
