Congratulatory messages from the Governor and the Premier to those celebrating significant birthdays and wedding anniversaries are available on request through your local Member or Senator’s electorate office. To ensure that the information included on the message is accurate, it is necessary that a birth certificate, marriage certificate or statutory declaration be provided as proof of the date of an occasion prior to any message being sent from the Premier or the Governor.
On receiving the request, Government House Sydney will arrange for a congratulatory message to be sent from the Governor to persons celebrating their 50th (Golden) wedding anniversary and every fifth thereafter, and their 90th birthday and every fifth year thereafter.
Where one of these milestones is missed, a letter may be requested for the next anniversary/birthday.
