Australian Historical Art Fund & Heritage Government Residences

The Australiana Fund was established in 1978 to raise funds to acquire and preserve a permanent collection of art works that are Australian by origin or by association.

These Australian artistic and historical works are acquired to furnish the residences occupied by the Governor-General and the Prime Minister. Their official residences are Government House and The Lodge in Canberra and Admiralty House and Kirribilli House in Sydney.
