Admiralty House

Admiralty House is the official Sydney residence of the Governor-General of Australia. It is located in the suburb of Kirribilli, on the northern foreshore of Sydney Harbour (adjacent to Kirribilli House, which is the Sydney residence of the Australian Prime Minister). This large, Italianate, sandstone mansion occupies the tip of Kirribilli Point. Once known as “Wotonga”, it has commanding views across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.


  1. A really swish place to live. Nice shot.

  2. I'd like to see this up close one day.

  3. I like both the state houses on this point. It is a difficult point to meander through. No around is possible, but there is a little waterfront park that is accessible.

    Love the shot ... from your boat again?

  4. Hi Jo, thanks for your photo of the Searle monument, I knew at least one Sydney blogger would've snapped it.
    Great shot of Admiralty House, it is a fine building.
