Harmony Week is held in March each year to celebrate our cultural diversity and promote participation, inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone. This year Harmony Week will be held from 18 to 24 March and includes Harmony Day, held on 21 March, which coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
Australia is a vibrant and multicultural country, from the oldest continuous culture of our first Australians to the cultures of our newest arrivals from around the world. One in every four residents in the Moreton Bay Region are born overseas, representing more than 180 nationalities and speaking more than 150 different languages.
Our cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths and is at the heart of who we are. It makes the Moreton Bay Region a great place to live.
