Encouraging Cultural Exchange, For Mutual Respect


To enlighten and entertain through quality contemporary and traditional cultural content, in order to strengthen the emotional bond between Australia and Korea.

Chief Officer’s Comment:

Welcome to the Korean Cultural Office in Sydney!

Established in April 2011, the Year of Friendship between Australia and Korea, the Korean Cultural Office aims to bring Australia and Korea even closer. In what marks the 50th anniversary of relations between the countries, the importance of the KCO’s establishment cannot be stressed enough. I believe that cultural exchange is the best way for people of differing backgrounds to become friends, and that is the same for our two nations.

Our website contains detailed information about what events and programs we are running, and how you can be part of it. Please take the time to look around and visit regularly for any updates, as we have insured to put on an exciting schedule for you. Do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity for you to embrace Korean culture!

We are located near the central CBD (just across from Museum Station), so when you have the time, please visit our facilities. The Korean Cultural Office is open to all Australians, no matter your background, and I hope to see you all soon.

Annyeong Mate!

Korean Cultural Office, Chief Officer
