Governor hosting lunch on terrace


COVID-19 and the Governor’s program

The Governor’s program is being kept under close review in light of the prevailing public health situation and associated government advisories. All invitations received for the Governor of Western Australia to host events or attend external events in the community will not be considered if they are not in line with the current State Government advice in terms of social distancing. We appreciate your understanding. The Governor and the Office of the Governor look forward to engaging with your organisation in the very near future.

Due to heavy scheduling, the Governor is not accepting any further invitations for events prior to 30th June 2022.
