Message from Consul-General Mr Richard Mathews

Strengthening Australia’s relations with Eastern Indonesia

Welcome to the website of the Australian Consulate-General in Makassar, South Sulawesi.

The Australian Consulate-General in Makassar was officially opened by Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Julie Bishop MP, on Tuesday 22 March 2016.

The Consulate-General promotes business, education, people-to-people and cultural links between Australia and Eastern Indonesia.

The Consulate-General also provides consular and passport services to Australian citizens in eleven provinces in Eastern Indonesia: South Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, West Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi, Gorontalo, North Sulawesi, East Nusa Tenggara, Maluku, North Maluku, West Papua and Papua.

We develop and maintain a range of networks, drawing on the existing skills, knowledge and experiences of people from both our countries. We see great potential for building stronger trade and investment links, strengthening connections between schools and educational institutions in Eastern Indonesia and Australia, drawing on researcher and academic experiences, and further expanding our growing alumni groups.

To keep up to date with our activities in building stronger relationships between Australia and the provinces of eastern Indonesia, follow us on Twitter and Facebook: @KonJenMakassar.
