Return The Governor

Evicted from Government House by Bob Carr in 1996, ACM is calling for the return of the Governor of New South Wales to Government House in Sydney.

To find out more about the campaign, including the power-grab that was behind the Governor's eviction, you can read our coverage below. To get involved, be sure to download and read our Return The Governor brochure.

This section begins with a series on the role and function of the Governor. This is followed by reports on the eviction.

He would not only throw the Governor out of his home, Government House, he would make the office part time!

Those ceremonial functions the Premier deemed “excessive, irrelevant and unbecoming” would be removed.
