IT’S early afternoon on a Sunday in Cabramatta and the streets are alive. Everywhere, from the gates of Cabramatta on Arthur St to the long strip of John St, families are jostling for foot space.

Ladies at banh mi outlets make roll after roll. Vendors selling rice paper rolls on upturned milk crates do a roaring trade to passers-by.

Elderly men open trolleys filled with fragrant herbs to sell in bunches. Small children, old ladies and tourists vie for a position on the footpath alongside a vibrant throng of Cabramatta locals, many of Vietnamese-Australian origin.

“This is Cabramatta’s moment,” says Thang Ngo, looking around proudly at his neighbourhood.
