Our Ceremonial and Hospitality Division (CERHOS) provides high level support for the Prime Minister’s overseas visits.

We support and coordinate ceremonial and state occasions such as State Funeral and Memorial Services, Prime Minister’s XI Cricket Match, COAG Meetings, end of year receptions, guests of government visits to Australia, and other events.
