Honorary Consul
Honorary Consul for Queensland
remove this page from My Favorites
Dear Compatriots

After some 40 plus years in the workforce, I decided towards the end of last year that I would like to have a break from the hectic hustle and bustle of executive life, and take up a new position as a 'baby boomer' respectively to become a 'grey nomad' and fulfil one of my long harboured wishes to tour Australia in a motorhome. This means we will be away for several weeks at times, if not a couple of months. Hence, I decided I would also need to resign my appointment of Honorary Consul for Queensland to allow me to travel freely. This I did with some trepidation and regret as over the past 14 years as your Consul here, I met many, many lovely and interesting people, encountered many new situations and challenges, and dealt with ever changing demands, bureaucracies, a considerable increase in tourism of Swiss citizens, etc. etc. I very much enjoyed my time in the consular world, even the sometimes tough and difficult ones.
It is my great pleasure to introduce my successor, Mr Daniel Gschwind (yes, another Basler !) who took over from me on 1st May 2008. Daniel is the CEO of the Tourism Industry Council of Queensland, and has extensive experience in Government, statutory bodies and organisations, executive level management and in particular, the tourism industry. I am certain that Daniel will be a worthy and efficient representative of Switzerland in the Sunshine State and will discharge his duties as the Honorary Consul in an exemplary manner. Daniel's contact details are:

Consulate of Switzerland
Level 11
30 Makerston Street
Brisbane - QLD 4000

Phone: (07) 3236 1445
Fax: (07) 3236 4552
Mob: 0419 219 795

Postal address:
P.O. Box 12382
George Street
Brisbane - QLD 4003

So, that leaves me to say 'good bye' (as your Consul). It has been a great honour and pleasure to serve you and to represent our great homeland. A very, very big Thank You to all who made me feel very welcome at the various functions over the years, and especially those who assisted me on many occasions ! I will of course continue as a member of the various Swiss organisations and look forward to attending functions and catching up with many of you in years to come. I wish Daniel all the very best and hope he will get as much enjoyment out of his new position as I did.
Uff wiederluege! Yours, Peter Gloor
