The Official Website of Government House Tasmania

On behalf of all of the staff at Government House I very much welcome the Premier of Tasmania’s announcement that Professor Kate Warner has accepted his offer to become the 28th Governor of Tasmania.

We greatly look forward to welcoming Professor Warner and Mr Richard Warner to their new roles and indeed into their new home. There is much respect for the Office of the Governor in Tasmania and together with my staff we will ensure that the Governor-designate is able to enjoy the dignity of the role and its popularity in the community; while also ensuring that Professor Warner is able to bring to bear her own influence on this important constitutional and community position in Tasmania.
