Australian Embassy

The Australian Embassy in Washington, DC advances Australia's political, security, defence, development, trade, investment and business relationships with the United States. The Embassy promotes Australia's innovation agenda, international education and tourism sectors. The Embassy also provides services to Australian citizens in the United States. It also hosts exhibits and events that are open to the general public.

A new photographic exhibit by Fiona Lake Whispering Grass shares stories from Australia's outback cattle stations. These images capture life on outback cattle stations located across Australia's vast rangelands, stretching more than 3,000km east to west and 2,000km north to south. This exhibit is open 10 am to 2 pm weekdays, from March 7 to June 8. Photo ID is essential for entry to the embassy.


She Runs Wild by Makda Kibour

As a self-proclaimed "intuitive painter", Makda Kibour describes her artwork as "driven by emotion that flows like lava, beautiful, hot and burning, and water cool as a winter stream — a deep, powerful and gutsy response to her inner self, letting her tell a story about herself and the world around her." The Touchstone Gallery will host an opening reception for this new exhibit on Saturday, March 3, 5 pm to 7 pm. The art exhibit is on display until April 1.


Women's History Day

Celebrate Women's History Month at the DAR Museum on March 3 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Explore the DAR museum, archives, and library to learn about female explorers, scientists, artists, activists, authors, spies, and more! Recognize powerful American women who left their mark on history, as you participate in such activities as chemistry experiments and cracking codes. This event is free and open to all ages.
