Wikipedia Description: Embassy of Australia in Washington, D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Embassy of Australia in Washington, D.C. is the diplomatic mission of the Commonwealth of Australia to the United States. The chancery is located on Embassy Row at 1601 Massachusetts Avenue NW, at Scott Circle in Washington, D.C. The current ambassador of Australia to the United States is Dennis Richardson, who was appointed to the position on July 11, 2005. He resides at the Australian ambassador's residence located at 3140 Cleveland Avenue, NW. The current Deputy Chief of Mission is David Stuart, a former Australian ambassador to the United Nations. In addition to the embassy, Australian consulates are located in New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Houston, and Seattle.
Located behind the chancery building is a memorial to the World War II United States Army soldiers who died during the Bakers Creek air crash, the deadliest air disaster in Australian history. Because embassies are considered foreign soil, the Bakers Creek Memorial Association petitioned American politicians to relocate the memorial to Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington County, Virginia. Senators Arlen Specter and Bob Casey, Jr. of Pennsylvania inserted language into the 2008 defense authorization bill to relocate the memorial. On June 11, 2009, a dedication ceremony will take place at the memorial's new home in Fort Myer, Virginia.
The embassy has featured Australian wine tastings, exhibitions of ceramics by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, sketches of World War II soldiers by Louis Kahan, paintings of Aboriginal women, and paintings of the Outback by Ben Shearer. A gallery located inside the embassy is open from 10am until 2pm on weekdays.
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
