The primary purpose of Government House is to support the constitutional function of the Governor as the Head of State’s representative in the legislative, appointment and administrative processes of the government of Western Australia.

At Government House, 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.

Government House belongs to the people. It is a venue for positive and productive engagement with the community, interstate and international visitors.

It is a venue wherein we acknowledge and value: the work of our volunteering agencies; our scientific and medical researchers; our indigenous communities; our educational attainments; those who contribute to culture and the arts, and our sacrificing veterans and defence forces.

The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia
