Old Government House – in the background

Standing within 200 acres of parkland overlooking historic Parramatta, Old Government House is Australia’s oldest public building. For seven decades it was the ‘country’ residence of the first 10 Governors of the colony, including Governor and Mrs Macquarie who, from 1810 to 1821, preferred the clean air and space of rural Parramatta to the unsanitary and crime ridden streets of Sydney Town.

The central block of the house was built in 1799 by Governor John Hunter, however the appearance of the house today is largely thanks to Governor and Mrs Macquarie. Their 1815 extensions, designed by Macquarie’s Aide, Lieutenant John Watts, transformed the house into an elegant Palladian style residence.

Visitors to the property today can step straight into the fashions of 1821, with their Anglo and Indian influences and strong emphasis on colour, through a meticlously researched ‘soft furnishings’ program. This has transformed the main rooms of the house to recreate the tastes and styles of Mrs Macquarie, influenced as they were by distance and a climate very different to ‘home’. Rooms are furnished with pieces from the National Trust’s collection of early colonial furniture; the largest collection in Australia.

Maria, who is a trained opera singer, is going back to Italy after studying with us over the Summer. Several time she brought the school to a standstill, with her beautiful, and amazingly powerful singing. Many staff members crowded at the door to see her impromptu concerts.
