Bangladesh has been participating at the national multicultural festival in Canberra upon invitation by the ACT Government for last few years. The present delegation performed launch time shows at Garema place in Canberra city on 13 and 14 February 2008. The shows were very well appreciated by large number of crowd. The first lunchtime show was cancelled due inclement weather. The programme was conducted and presented by Mr. Mahbub Hasan Saleh of Bangladesh High commission, Australia.

The cultural delegation from Bangladesh performed at an hour –long show at Belconen Theater on 15 February 2008 in the evening. It was a full-house and the audience included Australian Federal government and ACT government representatives, many Australian dignitaries and Bangladeshi-origin Australians. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the dance and music performance presented by the cultural delegation from Bangladesh. This type of programme certainly enhances the image of Bangladesh in a country like Australia.
