Over 500 packed the High Commission on Thursday evening to celebrate Australia Day - the first major celebration of Australia's national day at the High Commission in nearly a decade.

The guest of honour was Singapore's Health Minister Mr Gan Kim Yong, who was accompanied by Members of Parliament Mr Christopher de Souza and Dr Janil Puthucheary.

The event would not have been possible without the generous support of presenting partner Visy, the great Australian paper and packaging company growing substantially in Asia, as well as supporting partners Macquarie Group, Toll Global Logistics, Telstra Global, Harvey Norman and the Australian International School.

Food and beverage businesses in Singapore with Australian links served up a delicious array of fare, including fine cheese and wine, craft beer, burgers, pies, whisky, cold-pressed juice, coffee and even durian-flavoured lamingtons!

Food and beverage businesses involved were:

  • Jones the Grocer
  • Charlie & Co.
  • South Coast Bistro & Bar
  • The Gourmet Pie Company
  • Guzman y Gomez
  • Intrepid Aussie Gastrobar
  • Wine Directions
  • Equatorial Wines
  • Lucky You Cleanse Juice
  • Dimbulah Coffee
  • The Good Beer Company
  • Fine Spirits by La Maison du Whisky

Thanks to all our food and beverage suppliers and corporate partners for making such a significant contribution to the success of the event.
