It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to everyone attending the K'Ozzie Fest 2012. The Festival has evolved into a truly multicultural endeavour and this year it highlights the contribution of Aboriginal people, Irish settlers and Polish-Australians to the development of the beautiful Snowy Mountains region.

The program offers a unique variety of exciting events, such as fraternity flights over Mount Kosciuszko, concerts, piano recitals, book and film presentations. I am impressed by creativity, enthusiasm and engagement of the organisers, among others, the event coordinator Mrs Ernestyna Skurjat-Kozek, who tirelessly promotes the scientific achievements of Sir Paul Edmund Strzelecki and Tadeusz Kosciuszko's struggle for liberty and equality of all people. I am convinced that K'Ozzie Fest 2012 "Over the Moonbah" will be a resounding success and wish all participants many unforgettable impressions.

Ambassador Andrzej Jaroszynski
