Guided tours

A one-hour guided tour is available on request on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (from 10.30am). Find out who lived in the House and their family connections, how each of the stately rooms were used, the grand social gatherings that took place here, and the events that occurred at the House which helped shape Queensland's history. Guided tours are free but places are limited and bookings are essential. Contact us to book a tour.

Podcast tours

Led by the ghost of Governor Musgrave, who died in the House, the podcast tour guides you through key moments in the life of the House with audio dramatisations of exchanges that would have occurred between the characters of 19th century Queensland. Echoes of the past reveal themselves as you wander through the rooms of the House at your own pace.
