The Governor, as the representative of the Head of State, and Government House have played a central role in the ongoing development of Western Australia since 1829.

We believe the primary role of Government House is to serve the community. In addition to making the House and Grounds more available for public and community use, as Governor, I am a proud patron and advocate for more than 130 community organisations, with whom we work closely in support of their endeavour to provide care and services to our community.

We acknowledge the original custodians of the land of the House, the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, and their continuing connection to the land. We pay our respects to all members of Aboriginal communities throughout Western Australia and their cultures; and to Elders past and present.

The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia
