Harmony Day is held around Australia on 21 March Each year to celebrate our success as a diverse society. The focus of Harmony Day is to build social cohesion through the promotion of Respect, Participation and a sense of Belonging.

We have come from more than 200 countries around the world to become part of the story of this great country. The Theme encourages people to share their story to help us learn about and understand each other.
