Requests for Functions at Government House
Government House is the home of the Governor and Mrs Underwood
The Governor and Mrs Underwood will be pleased to host receptions at Government House to mark special occasions of significance for not-for-profit groups and for delegates attending conferences in the State. These are generally scheduled for an hour on weekday early evenings.
Educational visits by school and community groups may also be arranged. These are generally scheduled for an hour on weekday mornings.
Requests for His Excellency and Mrs Underwood to host a function should specify:
- the nature of the occasion and details of the organisation requesting the event;
- the desired date and time;
- and the number of people who are expected to attend;
- be addressed to:
The Official Secretary
Mr David Owen
GPO Box 1574
Hobart Tasmania 7001
The initial correspondence should come directly from the organisation or individuals making the request, signed by an office bearer of the organisation. Requests should not come from a commercial conference or event organiser.
A lead time of at least 8 weeks will enable the development of well-considered guest lists, the despatch of invitations and time for responses.
If the request is agreed to, Government House will be responsible for sending out the invitations (based on a suggested guest list supplied by the requesting organisation) and for the provision of all hospitality.
Please note that Government House is not a ‘venue for hire’ for use by outside organisations or caterers.
