We would like to thank all of you who joined us last Friday to celebrate 35 years of GABA, your presence made the night as delightful as it was. It was wonderful to see you on this fantastic night enjoying a delicious meal and the stunning view of the Story Bridge and the Brisbane river.

Thank you to Adrian Schrinner and Matthew Bourke for being a part of our celebration and contributing with refreshing speeches, and thank you to the Honorary Consul Michael Rosemann for his welcome speech and supportive words.

It was a great pleasure to have John Kahlert speaking, giving insights into the formation of GABA, the development of the association and past events, and then to finally welcome founding members of GABA to the stage to cut the (needless to say – delicious) cake as one highlight of the night.

And – of course – thank you to the staff at Blackbird restaurant for excellent service and amazing food!

Thank you also to our photographer Steve Erbel who took wonderful pictures.
