Regional Visit Program
“Our strength is our people. Their creativity, hard work, community sense, education, endeavour and perseverance all go to making up who we are as Western Australians.
I am looking forward to visiting different regions of the State and seeing what makes us tick. I know that in part it is our capacity for fun and kindness as well as hard work.”
With these words the Governor signaled his intention to spend time getting to know and appreciate the work of regional communities.
The Regional Visit Program ensures that the Governor has a good working knowledge of activities across the State.
Regional visits provide an opportunity for the Governor to engage with and express appreciation to regional support services, local government representatives, volunteers, school students, and the many other people that make up the fabric of our rural and regional communities.
