As one of Australia’s oldest colonial buildings, it makes sense that Old Government House is haunted. But that doesn’t mean all the ghosts are unfriendly. Many of visitors have reported seeing ‘the lady in blue and her dog’ from the upstairs window – thought to be one of Governor Bligh’s daughters. Lady Fitzroy is also said to haunt the estate having died in a horse and cart accident on December 7, 1847. Her body was brought into the centre of the house foyer and to this day people refuse to stand there.
