Bilateral relations

Brazil has an Embassy in Canberra, a Consulate-General in Sydney, and Honorary Consuls in Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Hobart, Melbourne, and Perth.

Australia and Brazil cooperate on a range of issues of mutual interest. People-to-people links are growing rapidly, with Brazilians now forming the largest migrant group from Latin America resident in Australia.

Australia and Brazil cooperate multilaterally in numerous forums, including the United Nations and its organisations, the G20 (which Brazil will host in 2024), the World Trade Organization (WTO) - including through the Cairns Group of agricultural fair-trading countries - the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and as Parties to the Antarctic Treaty.

The Australian Embassy in Brasilia manages a Direct Aid Program in Brazil.
