Government House

Government House in Wellington is a large, two-storey house, built mostly of wood, with attics, a grand staircase, a ballroom, dozens of other large and small rooms, very long corridors and a flag tower.

Designed in the office of the Government Architect, John Campbell, the designer of Parliament Buildings, principally by his assistant, Claude Paton, it was built between 1908 and 1910. The first vice-regal resident was Lord Islington who was Governor from 1910 to 1912. In late 2008, the House closed for a major strengthening and refurbishment project and was officially reopened on 24 March 2011.
