The Governor’s estate is probably the poshest official address in the city, and with 46 acres of land and heritage buildings on it, we expect nothing else. Partially open to the public, we got a chance to see the sunrise from their famous Sunrise Point. Needless to say, the experience was beyond satisfying, with a view that’s parallel to none.
There are about 10 heritage buildings in the estate, with most of them being state guesthouses and what surprised us what that there was even a British-era bunker right in there. As soon as we entered, we also saw a sign that read ‘Drive Slowly. Peacocks on the road’. Yes, there were peacocks, and yes, the estate is managed beautifully with lush lawns, well-maintained structures and even pathways that are trimmed daily.
There’s a lot of history behind it, and we’ll save that for another day and another story. But for now, we can’t recommend the place enough.
