Government House Victoria will once again participate in a virtual Open House Melbourne event in 2021.

Open House Melbourne

Open House Melbourne is held annually in July.  Due to COVID-19, both the 2020 and 2021 events were moved to a virtual platform.

As part of Open House Melbourne 2020, a live tour was broadcast online via our website.  The Governor, the Hon Linda Dessau AC and her husband, Mr Howard AM QC conducted a live tour of the State Apartments at Government House including the State Hall, State Drawing Room and Ballroom. Watch a recording of that tour below:
