Government House is located along Dunrossil Drive, a long tree-lined avenue perfect for photographs or a brisk walk. As the official residence of the Governor General of Australia, Government House is the location for many formal events, such as the presentation of the Order of Australia Awards. Set amid native bush land, the 80-year-old residence is nestled in lush, private gardens. Not usually open to the general public, visitors are treated to several open days each year. Information is available from the Canberra Tourism Center. A lookout from nearby Lady Denman Drive offers magnificent views of Canberra.
