Photo Post: PNG Independence Celebrations Brisbane

Some photo highlights of my first ever attendance at a PNG Independence day celebration anywhere.  This is at Logan in Queensland.  I went with my mother and brother visiting from Tasmania, as well as family and friends.

Trobriand Dancers
Bouganville Dancers
New Britain Dancers – dusted with talcum powder from audience to give them strength.
Some of my family saying hello to Central Province Dancers – best head dresses of the day.
Dance offs, I’ll see if I can dance your style.  South Pacific PNG Based family.
Kairuku Dancers from areas near where my mum is from.
With my friend Helene who also attended.
Some of the nearly 1000 people that attended
Checking out the stalls!
