World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards

Melbourne will host the World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards next year in a coup for Australia's fast growing culinary industry. The announcement was made at the 2016 awards hosted in New York in June.

To celebrate, Tourism Australia flew four of the country’s top chefs to New York to provide a taste of what guests can expect when they come to Melbourne in 2017. Ben Shewry, Dan Hunter, Neil Perry and Peter Gilmore created the ultimate Australian BBQ Brunch on the rooftop of the NoMad Hotel. All the mouth-watering highlights are captured in the video below.

Australian Federal Election

Over 3,220 Australians visited the Consulate to vote in this year's election, including actor David Wenham and former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. It was great to see so many Aussies in NYC!

We continue our partnership with Convicts this month by profiling Australian art consultant Miriam Grundy. Miriam founded Pollon Art, a consultancy bridging the gap between US collectors and the Australian Aboriginal art market. Here Miriam speaks about the artists she represents and her life and work in the East Village.
