Consul-General in Honolulu

  • Media release

Today I announce the appointment of Mr Greg Wilcock as Australia’s next Consul-General in Honolulu.

The United States is Australia’s vital security ally and closest global partner. Along with our deepening collaboration with the United States on defence, including through AUKUS, we have an extensive and mutually beneficial economic relationship.

Honolulu is headquarters to US Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM), the United States’ largest defence command by geographic area. Close cooperation with INDOPACOM is essential to Australia-US security cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region.

Our Consulate-General in Honolulu also advances Australia’s education and research interests in Hawaii, provides consular and passport services to Australians, and manages Australia’s interests in the US Pacific Territories of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.  

Mr Wilcock is a senior career officer with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and was most recently Assistant Secretary Media and Communications Delivery Branch.

He has previously served as Australia’s Consul-General in Mumbai, as Australia’s High Commissioner to Bangladesh, and has worked in Australia’s missions in Washington, Jakarta and Dili.  

I thank former Consul-General Andrea Gleason, who has advanced Australia’s interests as Consul-General in Honolulu since 2021, and outgoing acting Consul-General Chantelle Taylor.
