The Australia India Institute holds a number of public lectures throughout the year that are delivered by prominent members of both the national and international community. The lectures aim to inform the public of current and significant global matters and are themed around the areas of economics, business, science, arts and culture. 

The Australia India Institute convenes a number of workshops, seminars and roundtable discussions throughout the year. These activities are a means to encourage a diverse number of people to gather together to discuss relevant matters with a view to recommending a solution or promoting research.
