The Australian Consulate General in HCMC will host its second Australia Day community event on the Saigon South campus of RMIT University in HCMC’s District 7 this Sunday morning in commemoration of the Australian National Day (January 26).

Those participating in the one-day event will have the opportunity to join a variety of Australian sport activities and fun games such as Zorb-ball soccer, rugby, a bouncy castle and lamington-making.

A range of Aussie dishes prepared by leading restaurants and Australian chefs in the city are made available to serve party-goers during the festival while a music performance by students from the Australian International School, HCMC International School and RMIT University will entertain guests.

There will be a best-dressed competition, so participants are encouraged to wear Australian-style costumes featuring Aussie flag or kangaroo.

Australian Consul General Karen Lanyon told the Daily that the annual event is the first among a series of activities in 2018 to mark the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Australia and Vietnam (1973-2018) and contributes to deepening the long-standing friendship of the two nations.

Entrance tickets, costing from VND250,000 for adults and VND150,000 for children under 12 years old, can be purchased at Caravelle Saigon Hotel in District 1, Mekong Merchant in District 2, and Meatworks Butchery in District 7.

All the proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to Nguyen Dinh Chieu School for the Blind to give a helping hand to less fortunate kids.

The event starts from 1 p.m. and lasts until 6 p.m. at 702 Nguyen Van Linh Street in District 7.
