Kew Gardens

Government House

24 July 2014

We had the pleasure of having a private viewing of government house last week which proved to be a most wonderful tour.

Residents felt honoured to be in the inner sanctum and were in awe of the magnificent ballroom and original fixtures and fittings.

We were given a history of government house and viewed the prominent governors and their wives down through the ages to our current governor His Excellency Sir Alex Chernov and his wife, Elizabeth.

We also viewed the famous billiard room where Robert Lindum played.

We finished our day continuing onto the Royce hotel where we dined on fine wines and delicious food.

A wonderful day had by all.
