A quarter of Victoria’s population was born overseas and 43% of Australians have at least one parent who was born overseas. Victorians come from 200 countries, speak over 180 languages and follow 116 religious faiths (based on 2001 ABS Census data).

Harmony Day celebrates this wonderful diversity. It is part of the Australian Government’s Living in Harmony Initiative – a community based education program that began in 1999. In 2003 over 2700 organisations took part and there were over 660 events across the country. Now it is Australia’s largest national multicultural event.

Since its inception in 1999 Harmony Day has grown into Australia ‘s biggest annual multicultural event. Harmony Day is held during the month of March, focusing on the 21st, which is also the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
