A message from the Australian Ambassador to Denmark, Norway and Iceland
"Australia and Denmark, Norway and Iceland share values across many areas of international importance such as our shared commitment to freedom, democracy, rule of law and the rules-based international order. We value these partnerships greatly, but we also share a kindred spirit. Australians feel welcome when they visit Denmark, Norway and Iceland and we’re always happy to hear that the feeling is mutual, with travellers from this region visiting Australia for tourism, to studying or doing business.
There are many opportunities to connect our countries of accreditation with Australia and we will continue to build and establish new important links between governments, businesses and peoples."
Our bilateral relationship
Australia and Denmark share a bilateral relationship based on close cooperation on a range of issues in international forums, a strong commitment to global security, and people-to-people links established over two centuries of migration. According to the 2016 census, over 59,000 Australians claim Danish ancestry. Australia's profile in Denmark, and vice-versa, was boosted by the marriage in May 2004 of Australian-born Mary Donaldson to Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik.
Australia and Norway share the same values and are like-minded on many of the key challenges facing our globe. We are strong advocates for the rules-based international order. Norway is an important interlocutor for Australia on Antarctic issues. According to the 2016 census, over 26,000 Australians claim Norwegian ancestry.
