Our Patron

Her Excellency the Honourable Linda Dessau AC Governor of Victoria.

The Governor of Victoria is appointed by the Queen, on the advice of the Premier, to act as her representative as Head of State in Victoria. Since the Australia Acts of 1986, it is the Governor, and not the Queen, who exercises all the powers of the Head of State, and he or she is not subject to the direction or supervision of the Monarch. Upon appointment, the Governor becomes a Viceroy. The Governor’s main responsibilities fall into four broad categories: constitutional, ceremonial, community engagement and international engagement.

The Governor of Victoria, the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, at her inauguration as Governor, described her desire to be a “Governor of our times” and “to contribute in any way possible to a stable, democratic and prosperous State, and a united, peaceful, respectful and caring community”. Similarly, the Governor spoke of her intention to celebrate and facilitate “all the individuals, organisations, businesses and communities that … show courage by combining in the quest for unity and togetherness, and who work tirelessly for peace and prosperity in this, our wonderful State of Victoria”.
