Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Celebrating Mackay’s Multicultural Community

Orange has been the colour of choice over the past two weeks with schools, businesses and organisations coming together as a community to celebrate Harmony Day.

Harmony Day is the celebration that recognises diversity, bringing together Australians from all backgrounds.

Mackay Regional Council and The Neighbourhood Hub held an event last Tuesday, March 21 to celebrate Mackay’s multicultural community.

Multicultural groups shared their culture by wearing traditional dress and guest speaker Indriani shared her story as an Indonesian migrant.

Meanwhile schools such as Whitsunday Anglican College, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School and Mackay North State High School all held events to celebrate the diversity within their school communities.
