Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Government House website stated the Honourable Barbara Baker AC and Emeritus Professor Don Chalmers AO invite you to explore this site. This was a warm and welcoming indication of what to expect. The gates are regal, the driveway enticing and friendly guides awaited us in the front courtyard. The tour was Below Stairs - a delight to experience a different perspective of a grand and imposing jewel of a building.
    The guides, Gemma and Brian worked as a seamless partnership giving a relaxed and knowledgeable exploration of the many aspects of life behind the glamourous presentation. Each of the integral areas of the household, although humble compared to the front of house offered insight into the detail and care that goes into every action to make this property function. Laundries hum busily below ballrooms, cool rooms offer tantalising comparisons to my grocery shopping list, kitchen staff glow with pride explaining the self sufficiency and strong relationship with kitchen garden and orchards to produce anything from morning tea to banquets. The flower room came with proud explanations of how the flowers on display set the tone and mood for day to day to state events. The Below Stairs explored the care and detail of staff members enthusiastically and proudly ensuring each and every small detail is perfect. Brian shared his knowledge of functional and grand pieces of furniture. The tour ends with the Gift Shop - where all seemed to have been produced from the fruits of the House staff, gardens or vineyard. There were eight of us on the tour and the others as we were, seemed thoroughly delighted with the experience. I have attended open days here in the past, but would happily return for a tour of either the State Rooms or garden. While this is a imposing site with all conducting work according to protocols, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience of life below stairs where devotion to detail and exactness from proud and very welcoming staff was a delight. Thanks for the warm invite!

    The building dates to 1901 with the groundbreaking ceremony and opened to the public in 1905. It's built in the Edwardian Baroque architectural style to a design by Hobart architect, Alan Cameron Walker. Beautiful sandstone building with the clocktower an eyecatching feature.

    We were headed here to view the Mercury print museum, not realising that it had closed and that we would have to satisfy ourselves with exterior views. The building is vacant but seems well maintained and with a couple of informative signs adjacent the fence. It is not known when it was built as it predates any Government record held by the State which began in 1822. Because of this, it is alleged to be the oldest building in Hobart and Tasmania, although unproven. Even the origin of the name, for John Ingle, is a matter of conjecture. In any event, the white painted Georgian structure is historic and worth a look, ever from the outside.
