National pride undiminished by problems back home

 
Hundreds of Papua New Guineans gathered at Roma St Parklands Brisbane city last Saturday to celebrate 36 years of freedom. The expatriate community was out in force, many travelling from outside Brisbane to be there. Others flew down from PNG curious about how the event is celebrated by those who now live and work in Australia.
Consul General Paul Nerau said the event was growing year-by-year and soon he hopes to have a permanent cultural centre in the city where residents, students, government officials and other visitors can mingle.
