About us

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) not only offers an invaluable service to Australians overseas through a network of Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates, but it also works domestically to advance Australia’s foreign policy, trade, development and consular interests.

The Queensland State Office builds and maintains strong relationships with a range of stakeholders across metropolitan and regional Queensland. This includes State and local governments, non-government organisations, universities, businesses, professional associations, and priority sectors for our exports, such as education and tourism.

We assist the Queensland government with its international objectives by sharing information and facilitating international trade missions, promoting a ‘Team Australia’ approach.

We also assist the Department by providing support to our portfolio Ministers and Parliamentary Secretary, and assisting government and industry in Queensland to connect with foreign markets.

Working towards lower barriers for Australian exporters is an important objective for us. DFAT’s ability to advance the interests of Australian exporters depends in large part on the information provided to it by the business community. If you are facing barriers in getting your exports into foreign markets, please contact us.

  • The Queensland State Office organises consultations in Brisbane and regional cities on trade issues, including developments in negotiations in the World Trade Organization, Australian and UN sanctions, and in negotiations towards free trade agreements with other countries.
  • We also manage visits to Queensland by Australian Ambassadors and High Commissioners so they can consult directly with stakeholders in Australia.

Information on the international trade environment

DFAT can help you access information about the global, regional or country environment into which you are seeking to export your goods and services, including economic data from our Countries and Regions page.

  • Subscribe to Trade Talk for the latest trade news from Australia and the world.

DFAT provides information on the international trade environment to exporters including publications on Australia, Australian foreign and trade policies and the economic and political climate in other countries.


DFAT recruits both graduates and non-graduates for a range of positions. The Department offers a varied and challenging career advancing Australia's international political, economic, development, consular and security interests.
The Queensland State Office does not recruit employees directly, and we are unable to offer opportunities for work experience or internships in the office.
