Government House, Brisbane

Government House is located in the Brisbane suburb of Paddington, in Queensland, Australia.

Government House is the official residence of the Governor of Queensland. The Governor of Queensland is the representative of Queen Elizabeth II in Queensland, and therefore the Head of State of Queensland. It is to Government House that the Premier travels when he or she wishes to request from the Governor a dissolution of Parliament and the calling of a General Election. Following the outcome of such elections, the Governor appoints the Premier and Ministry, and the swearing-in of members takes place at Government House.

Government House Open Day, when it is open to the general public, is held each year, usually on Australia Day, 26 January.
