Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC CVO was appointed as Australia’s 25th Governor-General in September 2008.
I am pleased to announce that Her Majesty The Queen, on my advice, has agreed that Ms Bryce will serve as Governor-General for an extended term until March 2014.
The Governor-General has carried out her duties with distinction.
On behalf of the Government and the people of Australia I wish the Governor-General and Mr Bryce well for the remainder of her time in office.
