Brisbane City Sketchers at FERNBERG

The Brisbane City Sketchers had a wonderful afternoon at  Fernberg, at the Governors Open House. This is a magnificent Historical building built in 1865. The name Fernberg is German for distant mountain. Fernberg is a working vice-regal residence - a unique combination of private residence, busy office, public symbol of the State’s prestige, guardian of important traditions, and proud protector of the State’s history and heritage. The property has changed hands multiple times during its lifetime, but has been the official residence and workplace of Queensland Governors for more than a century.
It is presently occupied by the present Governor of Queensland His Excellency the Honorable Paul de Jersey AC (Companion of the Order of Australia)
