All 2020 Victorian Teas have been cancelled due to Pandemic restrictions.

Since 1991, Victorian teas are a long-held tradition at Government House. Hosted by the outstanding volunteers of the Government House Historical Society in the Henry Newlands Ballroom, they offer a unique setting for this time-honoured tradition. There are two sittings each day at 1:00 and 2:30.  Reservations are required.  The deadline is Friday noon of the week in which the tea is being held.

Did you know? 50-60 volunteers are needed to run the tea, and they serve over 2500 people per year, 180 slices of bread have the crust removed per tea or 1620 per year go into sandwiches and 350 napkins are folded each tea weekend or 3500 per year.

The Government House Historical Society makes this a must attend event.
