Your Wedding at Old Government House

An elegant backdrop to the most memorable day of your lives, nothing says class and sophistication like the sweeping grandeur of Old Government House. Queensland's most important heritage building can accommodate your Wedding ceremony and/or reception, with options to suit most couples.

Old Government House boasts stunning period features, including a grand staircase and hand-crafted champagne Swarovski crystal chandelier. A $15 million restoration has ensured the 150-year-old House's integrity as Brisbane's premier wedding venue.

Consider holding your ceremony inside the grand entrance hall, in the walled courtyard, or on one of the luscious lawns surrounding the House. Afterwards, the entire lower floor can be transformed into a banquet room for a traditional reception dinner, or you may prefer to juxtapose the old with the new and enjoy the panoramic views of Brisbane from nearby Room Three Sixty.

The House and grounds also serve as beautiful backdrop for photographs, with traditional colonial architecture, sandstone walls and high columns. While you capture special moments, your guests can enjoy pre- or post-ceremony refreshments in the walled courtyard or on the generous wrap-around verandahs.

Old Government House is open for public viewing Sunday–Friday 10am–4pm
