Harmony Day – 21 March

Did you know that every year on the 21st of March we have Harmony Day in Australia to celebrate our cultural diversity? Since 1999, the day has been celebrated by a number of community, school and commercial events across the nation.

Australia is, as you know, a vibrant and multicultural country. Nearly half of Australians were born overseas or have a least one parent who was. We have more than 300 ancestries.

As the nation enters lockdown and racism is being reported related to the coronavirus, and although many events have been cancelled this year, we can – as individuals or families – reflect on the values of our cultural diversity and how it makes Australia a better place to live.
