Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Canberra
The historical ties that bind the Netherlands and Australia date back to the early 17th century, when Dutch VOC ships were the first Europeans to map and chart the coastline of the Australian continent.
The Dutch Diplomatic missions in Australia commit themselves to the sustainable preservation and promotion of Dutch-Australian heritage, gathered together as the so-called 4 M’s: Maritime, Migrant, Military and Mercantile heritage.
The embassy's Shared Cultural Heritage programme is part of the Dutch International Cultural Policy Framework.
