Monaco Week in Sydney

Monaco Week in Sydney

MONACO and Australia are celebrating 10 years of diplomacy with a dedicated series of events led by H.E. Mrs Catherine Fautrier, Ambassador of Monaco to Australia.

Focusing on environmental, business, tourism, cultural and philanthropic links between the two countries, celebrations have been taking place in Sydney from 18-22 Sep.

The Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Authority opened a representative office to cover Australia and New Zealand in 2010. The office continues to successfully promote tourism, meetings and convention travel to the destination, with Australian visitors ranking the 9th visitor nationality in 2016.

Over 10,000 Australians visit Monaco each year and more than 150 Aussies reside in the Principality. The two countries have developed an important relationship thanks to a sharing of common ideals, such as a support for arts and culture players, protection of the environment and sustainable development.

Sustainability & environmental protection is important to the Principality of Monaco and H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, and is a key focus for the 10th anniversary celebrations

Celebrating in Sydney are representatives from Monaco Tourism, Monte-Carlo SBM, Chef Benoit Witz and his team, Ambassador H.E. Catherine Fautrier, the Honorary Consul of Monaco (NSW, NT, Qld) Hadrien Bourely and The Joy Agency account mgr Elle Kerin.
