About Government House
The gardens and grounds of Government House, the official residence and workplace of South Australian Governors since 1840, is an important landmark that is steeped in historical, cultural and environmental significance.
The grounds have accommodated the functions of 35 Governors for almost 200 years and include original plantings of trees, including Moreton Bay Figs and Palms, as well as plants of botanical significance.
Bordered by King William Road, North Terrace, Kintore Avenue and the River Torrens, the total area of the grounds of Government House is 5.6 hectares.
Many of the trees located on the grounds are ceremonial plantings and include a descendent of the Lone Pine at Gallipoli planted by His Excellency Sir Eric Neal, and a Claret Ash planted by Her Excellency Marjorie Jackson-Nelson.
The Governors’ Rose Garden, developed with the generous support and cooperation of the Rose Society of South Australia, is a feature of Government House, and commemorates every Governor of South Australia with a stand of roses.
