      Staff and friends of Government House available as in-House guides.
      Garden tours will be provided by the Friends of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide.
      Musical entertainment will be provided by Unley Concert Band and Wilderness School.
      Members of the Victoriana Society will be dressed in period costume.

      Just about to have a walk over there now, one of the may good things about Adelaide is all its heritage buildings and its history, this is a rare opportunity so seeing I whilst I can.
