Australia World Chaîne Day

Bailliage of Australia
Brisbane, April 23, 2022

And thus it began in the land of Oz!
" We embraced greenness in accordance with this year's World Chaîne Day (WCD) theme "

An enthusiastic band of Bailliage members and their guests gathered at Luke’s Bar at The Lawn, Kangaroo Point. We embraced greenness in accordance with this year’s World Chaîne Day (WCD) theme of “green in all its forms”.

Vice-Conseiller Gastronomique Jeremy Ryland worked with Chef Luis San Martín to craft a deliciously sustainable, upcycled, zero waste menu.

The Bailliage submitted a large number of photos to the International WCD social media wall. Our fingers are crossed to win another prize in this year’s WCD photo competition.
