Lovely building, great art - the best Lamington! The house is beautifully restored and free to enter. There's a lovely collection of William Robinson painthing upstairs, with very friendly and informative staff ready to share knowledge (thank you Joseph!). Finally, the cafe is lovely and has THE BEST Lamington I've ever had (fitting as this is the home of the cake!) Thank you!
The Old Governor's Palace in Brisbane is a Victorian-style building built in 1860 and 1862. It is one of the most famous historical sites in Brisbane and the best window to understand the early colonial history of Queensland. The old governor's residence is not far from the CBD downtown, and it's right at the end of George Street. It is located in the Garden Corner Campus of Queensland University of Science and Technology. If you walk from the South Bank Park, you can cross the Lucky Bridge. The Old Governor's Palace not only has a long history, but also is the famous place where Laminton Cake was invented in Lemington, Australia. The attraction is adjacent to the Botanical Garden and Queensland University of Science and Technology, and is completely free of charge. It is a good place for visitors to know Brisbane.
