Festival of Tibet, Brisbane Powerhouse
Brisbane Powerhouse, New Farm

What do Dalai Lama and Mt Everest have in common? That's right, they are both from Tibet. A region, north of China that is on the travel itinerary for most of the adventurous travellers, or mountain climbers. Don't despair, If you are not a mountain climber, you can celebrate The Festival of Tibet for its 10th year at the Brisbane Powerhouse, in New Farm.

This year, crowd favourites will return to the Festival of Tibet. Join the Conversations with Dalai Lama's honourable sister, Ama La (Jetsun Pema) and Meshel Laurie, author of Buddhism for the Unbelievably Busy. It will be divine!

Personally, I enjoy the creativity of Sand Mandala Art, with the beautiful bright colours and intricate designs. There are various and engaging free and ticketed events and workshops that you can attend over the weekend of the festival. The festival raises much needed funds for the Tibetan refugee community, with proceeds going to the Tibetan Children's Village Schools in India.

Following a morning event at the Festival of Tibet, you may want to pack a picnic lunch. Last year, my picnic lunch included a thermos of Jasmine tea and Indian vegetarian food which we enjoyed by the riverside.

Your Comment
Tamzski - may I correct your geography? Tibet is not north of China. It is an autonomous region in south-western China.
