Journey by Dawn

This is Australia Part I: The Parade

This year, Australia Day was as colourful as ever, with hundreds of performers and spectators! Here are some of my captures with the Canon 800D camera and 50mm lens.


Start of the parade on Swanston street, Melbourne



A lovely human-cockie presenting the parade


Followed by impressive Chinese human-dragons!


Mexican dance performers


Oh so dear to me, with the colours and sincerity of expression


and skilled dance movements


Indian dances


other traditional costumes


even costumes from movies!


Old handmade bikes!


And more circus-like!


Minority groups such as Mss Gay


And even a keyboard with guitars!

In conclusion, very impressive colourful exposition! The second half of the day I spent in the immigration museum – learning about the first settlers in Australia that came from across the globe also listening to audio personal stories of people sharing their arrival to Australia journey.

See my next blog: This is Australia 2: Immigration History for photos and reflections. Coming up soon…
