The Drawing Room is the most used space within Government House, and is the venue for a range of events, with guests drawn from the Queensland community.
Recently, the Governor and Mrs de Jersey hosted receptions honouring Her Majesty The Queen's official birthday, the 25th anniversary of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and an awards ceremony for Girl Guides.
The Drawing Room was constructed during major refurbishment works to Government House in the 1930s.
Artwork on the walls reflect different perspectives of Queensland. Many are on loan from the Queensland Art Galley - Gallery of Modern Art.
