Harmony Week

Celebrate Harmony every day

Harmony Week is celebrated from March 15-21.

It is a time to celebrate Australian multiculturalism, and the successful integration of migrants into our community. Everyone belongs.

Harmony Week is all about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone, regardless of cultural or linguistic background, united by a set of core Australian values.

Our cultural diversity

Australia is one of the most successful multicultural countries in the world. Our cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths and makes Australia a great place to live.

An integrated multicultural Australia is an integral part of our national identity. All people who migrate to Australia bring with them some of their own cultural and religious traditions, as well as taking on many new traditions.

Collectively, these traditions have enriched our nation.

Embracing diversity

Apartment living the preferred choice

Apartment living has become the preferred option for many, with 15% of all Australians now living in apartments. Migrants, downsizers, first home buyers, families, singles and professionals now all call strata home.

The only commonality of those living in strata is actually that they all live in strata.

The need for tolerance and respect, because of living in such close proximity to each other, and the inclusion of all residents together with a welcoming sense of belonging for all has never been stronger.

Should tensions arise between residents, encourage the message of Harmony Week.

Inclusion, respect and belonging for everyone to live harmonious together.
