Government House is continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation.

The Governor’s diary has been cleared of community and ceremonial events until the end of May. The primary consideration is to ensure the Governor can fulfil his central constitutional duties, including ensuring the continuation of Executive Government.

Unfortunately, Investiture Ceremonies for recipients of 2020 Australia Day Honours, due to take place in May 2020, have been postponed until September 2020 at this stage. Recipients will receive further information from the Office of the Governor regarding their Ceremony.
