“Friends of Lacluta” is a Friendship Agreement between the Rural City of Wangaratta
in Victoria, Australia and Lacluta, which is a sub-district of the East Timor district Viqueque. Lacluta is located about 250km to the east and south of the capital Dili.
Following a proposal by Abel Guterres, Consul-General to Australia, at a meeting with Wangaratta Councillors, the idea of a friendship relationship between Wangaratta and Lacluta was born. A Wangaratta delegation visited East Timor and the relationship was formalised at a signing ceremony in Lacluta on 25 September 2005.
