Lunar New Year Festival

Each year, Abbotsford’s Victoria Street is closed for traffic as the local community celebrates the Lunar New Year. Close to a hundred thousand people attend a great weekend full of activities including carnival rides, firecrackers and plenty of stalls serving delicious Chinese and Vietnamese food.

Gambler’s Help Financial Counsellor, Minh Tran supported the event led by, Australian Vietnamese Women’s Association (AVWA). Members of the community sought Gamblers Help program information and service promotion freebies, as well as discussing gambling in the local community and help seeking.  Minh Tran is based at the AVWA each Wednesday.
