Australia now 2018

Australia now Wraps Up!

After eight busy months, Australia now 2018 ended where it began: with a magnificent celebration of Australia’s proud Aboriginal and Torres Strait cultures by Bangarra Dance Theatre on 9-10 November. Since Yorta Yorta soprano Deborah Cheetham AO and Sarah Àlainn opened the program in April, over 420,000 visitors have participated in around 220 Australia now events in 28 prefectures across Japan. Check out the final Australia now newsletter here and video looking back at the many wonderful ‘Australia now’ moments. With your help, the relationships fostered this year will only keep on growing as Australia supports Japan’s hosting of the G20, Rugby World Cup and Olympics and Paralympics. Thank you for being part of the journey!
