The Governor of Victoria, the Hon Linda Dessau AC, represents the people of Victoria in her role and governs for the whole State. 

The Governor and Mr Howard make short and extended visits throughout the State and regional city centres as part of their regular program, and invite people from regional Victoria to a range of events at Government House.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor and Mr Howard are continuing their engagement with Victoria’s regional communities via their virtual regional tour program.  These virtual regional visits allowed the Governor and Mr Howard the opportunity to continue to maintain important links with Shires all over the State.

While the Governor and Mr Howard are now able to resume their program of physical visits to all regions in Victoria, virtual regional visits remain an important part of the Governor and Mr Howard's program.
