Hong Kong 2016 tour

The Australian Youth Band has had many exciting opportunities on the world stage in recent years, including tours to Beijing for the 2008 Olympics, North America in 2010, Malaysia in 2012 and Shanghai in April 2013. Our most recent international adventure was a tour to Hong Kong where we performed at various iconic locations including Stanley Market Plaza, Ocean Park, Festival Walk Shopping Mall and Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza. Of course, we also got loads of sightseeing done in between, including seeing Giant Buddha, going to Ngong Ping Village, shopping (how could we not?) and exploring Tsim Sha Tsui. The band was in Hong Kong from Saturday 25 June through Monday 4 July 2016 – a detailed itinerary is listed below.
