The Private Drawing Room
The Private Drawing Room is used for small formal occasions.
The room can hold up to 60 people and often acts as a reception area for the Private Dining Room. The French windows provide access to the Rose Garden. This room was significantly extended and renovated in preparation for the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1920. The whole external arcade, which formed the eastern portico, was incorporated into the area between the cross beam and the windows, creating an open and spacious room.
The Governor and Mr Anthony Howard QC attended the Australian Formula One Grand Prix at Albert Park.
