  • Certain areas of Old Government House are wheelchair accessible on the ground floor. The Vice Chancellor’s suite and Buttery bar area are not accessible to those with mobility impairments due to several stairs. There is no elevator in the building, and as a result the first floor of the building is not accessible to those using wheelchairs or with mobility impairments. OGH does not have accessible toilets. Mobility parking is available at the main gate car park at 5 Symonds St. This is an uncovered car park, accessed via a barrier arm next to the Old Choral Hall building.
