Bangladeshi people started immigration to Australia from early 1980s. They came young but now many of them are already retired or are close to retirement. They have contributed immensely for the development of their adopted country and assimilated themselves with the Australian values and culture. This year the Club is aiming at celebrating Australia Day 2022 along with the broader Bangladeshi community living in Canberra and surrounding area for reflecting the achievements of the Bangladesh community towards the advancement of Australian society, culture and economy. In order to achieve the above, the Club will organise a daylong festival showcasing Bangla culture, dress, food stalls, a community BBQ and live entertainment (musical program> the club will try to organise an Indigenous Elder (or somebody knowledgeable on how Indigenous Elders are respected etc.) as a guest speaker. The event will be for 8 hours starting at 11 am and finishing at 6pm.
