people in the Moreton Bay region.

Harmony Day is held every year throughout Australia on 21 March. Harmony Day aims to recognise and celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity and promote the key message that ‘everyone belongs’.

The Moreton Bay region is one of the fastest growing and culturally diverse regions in Australia. One in every four residents are born overseas, representing over 180 nationalities and speaking over 150 different languages.

Harmony Day provides an opportunity for council to celebrate the regions cultural diversity and promote a sense of belonging to everyone that calls the Moreton Bay region home.
