State Dining Room

The formal State Dining Room sits at the heart of the original 1865 building. 

Formal dinners are hosted on the 24-seat dining table - built from local yellowwood in 1896 and brought to 'Fernberg' from Old Government House - acknowledging and thanking individual and community endeavour, and honouring distinguished guests visiting Queensland.

The Coronation Portrait of Her Majesty hangs on the northern wall, a reminder of the Governor's role as the sovereign's representative.
