Invitations for the Governor-General

Below, you'll find forms to invite the Governor-General to your event or to request a function hosted by the Governor-General at Government House.

We recommend you also read 'Engaging with the Governor-General', a guide outlining the Governor-General's priorities, areas of interest and Government House protocols. This may help you frame your invitation.

Please note: the Governor-General has a full schedule of events from now until the end of April 2021. Invitations for the period May - August can still be submitted.
