Chinese New Year's Eve

Being a multicultural country you would expect that Chinese New Year would be celebrated in Australia. Brisbane's Chinatown is in Fortitude Valley. A friend and I spent a few hours there on Chinese New Year's Eve, Saturday night, enjoying the atmosphere and watching some of the free entertainment. It had an Asian bias but was not entirely Chinese.

We saw Chinese dancers from the Queensland World Dance Academy. The little girl in the picture is one of them. Balinese Jauk mask dancers followed and the evening ended with world music performed by a trio that included Tibetan Australian, Tenzin Choegyal. So you see, I'm not exactly deprived of Asian culture here in Brisbane.

More pictures of these performances can be found on my latest photos page.
