Queensland’s most important historic building, Old Government House has undergone an extensive refurbishment, restoring it to its former glory.
Located in the heart of Brisbane City and overlooking the Botanic Gardens, The House was the official residence of the Governors of Queensland up until 1910, and today offers couples a distinctive and romantic setting for their dream wedding. Forming part of the QUT Venue Collection, this incredible venue is sure to make your day unforgettable for all the right reasons.
Old Government House’s 150-year old features include high ceilings, timber floors, wrap-around external verandah and a grand staircase. The impeccable elegance of the fully-restored interior is complemented by a hand-crafted Swarovski topaz crystal chandelier, a stunning centrepiece offering a contemporary twist.
