This short silent clip shows a rollerskating carnival at a rink in Brisbane.

It was produced by West's Pictures and is probably the Glideway Skating Rink in Melbourne Street, South Brisbane, which opened in 1909.

It shows men, women and a few children rollerskating, women playing a form of skating hockey and what appears to be a game of musical chairs.
