Government House Open Day was on 18th March, more than 10 daya go but only update it now hehehe… Didn’t tranfer the photo to the computer that’s why.
Found out about it on that day itself and decided to check it out even though I wasn’t really in the mood. However, I just didn’t want to waste the nice weather staying indoor!
Off I went, it’s near my place. Less than 5 minutes walk.
It’s the oldest current Government House in Australia, also the second oldest continuously occupied house in Adelaide.
You don’t get to go in on the normal days so this is the time it’s opened to public. Might as well don’t waste it, some more this might likely be my first and my last time here.
Admission was free.
The highlights of the day were:
– specially set up displays of exhibits within the State collection documenting Her Majesty’s service and visits to South Australia.
– the State dining table set with silver and crystal for a formal dinner.
– Australian paintings on loan from the Art Gallery of South Australia.
– where the police inspector was murdered in 1862. (Is it?!?!? I didn’t notice it!)
Was there for an hour. It was a lovely day even though my mood was gray. Still life goes on…
