We invite you to the 30th International Complement Workshop
There’s nowhere else on earth like Australia. Rich in spirit, diversity, and dramatic landscapes, Australia is the world’s smallest continent yet largest island. With a 60,000-year history steeped in Indigenous culture and a modern forward-looking population, Australia is a multicultural and inclusive country with a dynamic and exciting future.
