Government House Foundation of Western Australia
The Government House Foundation of Western Australia was established in 1987, with the primary objective of promoting awareness of the significance of Government House, the ballroom and gardens as part of the history and heritage of Western Australia.
The Foundation directly supports the conservation, restoration and enhancement of this magnificent property raising funds to acquire appropriate works of art, antique furnishings,Â objets d’art and items of significant historical, cultural and contemporary value.
In 2006, the Government HouseÂ Foundation commenced theÂ Music on the Terrace series. A number of concerts of exceptional musical quality are presented each year, which provide a platform for local, national and international performers and opportunities for young Western Australian artists to shine.
I was delighted to accept the role of President of theÂ Foundation in July 2011 and look forward to working closely with the dedicated team of volunteers committed to the preservation of this beautiful house and its grounds.Â The Governor and I are pleased to be able to share the gardens with the people of Western Australia and invite you to visit the gardens (open several times a week) and to participate in a guided tour of the House on open days.
My congratulations to the passionate team of volunteers who are committed to the Government House Foundation as it continues to promote this historic house and the role it has played in Western Australia for so many years.
Mrs Tonya McCusker, President of the Government House Foundation of WA
