Requests for Receptions

Requests for Receptions or Functions at Government House

The Administrator may host receptions or other functions at Government House to mark special occasions of significance and for initiatives that clearly demonstrate significant outcomes for the Northern Territory.

Government House is the home of the Administrator and Mrs Hardy and is, therefore, not a venue available for hire. Please also note that the Administrator does not host corporate, sponsorship, fundraising events or weddings at Government House.

If your organisation would like the Administrator to host a function at Government House, please submit a letter of request to the Administrator no later than three months prior to the proposed function date.

The letter of request should include:

  • Reason for the function
  • Number of intended guests
  • Three preferred dates.

The letter of request should be addressed to:

His Honour the Honourable John Hardy AO
Administrator of the Northern Territory
GPO Box 497
DARWIN  NT  0801

Salutation:  Your Honour
