Tourism Australia’s G’Day USA program has launched its AUSTRALIAHOUSE @ South by Southwest (SXSW) 2018 activation overnight and has been the subject of a long and persisitent queue ever since to sample the wares of our great brown land.
Located in the heart of the action on Austin’s Rainey Street, this all-encompassing Australian experience kicked off on March 11 and runs through to March 16, presenting the very best of Australian innovation, film and music, as well as unique food, wine and tourism experiences.
Guests at AUSTRALIAHOUSE can enjoy world-class coffee from Hugh Jackman’s ‘Laughing Man Café’, premium Australian wine & cheese pairings with chef Curtis Stone, and a huge line up of talent, featuring over 60 Australian performances across 9 SOUNDS AUSTRALIA showcase events.
AUSTRALIAHOUSE will also feature TedX-style talks and interactive panels with some of Australia’s leading figures in film, space, music and philanthropic innovation.
SXSW attendees will also be able to swing by the AUSTRALIAHOUSE booth at the SXSW Trade Show for program information & a big week of networking sessions and business showcases.
