Cultures get together to welcome in Chinese New Year

GLADSTONE Multicultural Association welcomed in the Chinese New Year with a small gathering at the marina on Sunday from 10am to 3pm.

People from different backgrounds came to celebrate the day, which featured Chinese-inspired music and decorations.

A buffet-style lunch was served where people could bring a plate and indulge in a mix of traditional Chinese cuisine, as well as an Australian favourite, the sausage sizzle.

The event, which is now in its second year, was considered a success, with people coming together to celebrate not only Chinese culture, but also to recognise Gladstone as a diverse and welcoming city.
