Governor's Residence

In the grounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens is this stately mansion. Currently occupied by the Governor of NSW, Marie Bashir.


  1. Wow! All I can think of is how much cleaning I would need to do;)
    A magnificent building! What a home.

  2. She doesn't actually occupy it, and the day to day work is handled across the street. But for ceremonial occasions, this is the place. There are free tours of the downstairs available just about every day.

  3. Thanks Rosemary, I hear she might be moving back in, is this the case?

  4. Yes, I believe that she is moving back in, too. Read it in the SMH so it must be true! I think Mr O'Farrell wants to free up space in the Chief Secretary's building which is where the Governor's office currently is. Personally, I think she lives in her own house.

  5. You're right Julie, she lives in her own house. That's what the tour guide told me earlier in the year.

  6. Just like Dawn, I thought that cleaning would have taken a huge amount of time..... ( Perhaps I can not say it like this in English? )

    It looks like the garden is big too!

    Great place and a nice photograph!
