Harmony Day

Harmony Day, held on March 21 each year, celebrates the cohesive and inclusive nature of our nation and promotes the benefits of Australia’s cultural diversity.

The key message of Harmony Day is ‘everyone belongs’. It's about community participation, inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

Diverse Australia Program

The Diverse Australia Program is a community-based engagement initiative that aims to address issues of cultural, racial and religious intolerance through community activities that break down barriers and engender respect.

The Program is administered by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship and provides funding and support to help organisations create a spirit of inclusiveness and to help ensure all Australians are treated fairly regardless of their cultural, racial or religious background or circumstance.

The Diverse Australia Program also administers Harmony Day on 21 March every year.
