Public condolence book for MH17

As a mark of respect for the victims of the MH17 crash, a public condolence book has been opened at

the Visitor's Room, Government House gatehouse, Fernberg Road.

The Visitor's Room will be open daily between 8.30am and 5pm.


The Government House website focuses on the Governor of Queensland, Her Excellency The Honourable Ms Penelope Wensley AC, her role and responsibilities, and her program of constitutional, official and civic duties.

Government House is the Governor's home during her term of office, and serves also as an administrative centre to support her official program.

The Governor hosts thousands of visitors to Government House annually, for Open Days, school visits, ceremonial occasions and hospitality events that recognise and value individuals and organisations who serve the Queensland community.

This site includes the Governor's daily program, selected speeches and articles, official photographs and anthems, and details of the Australian System of Honours and Awards.

"As a proud Queenslander, conscious of my heritage, I pledge that I will do all I can to serve the people of Queensland and to promote and enhance the welfare and standing of the State."
