Harmony Day

Thank you for visiting the website. In the period preceding an election, the Australian Government assumes a caretaker role.

As this website is hosted by the Department of Social Services, information will be published in accordance with the Guidance on Caretaker Conventions available from the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet website.

Harmony Day, 21 March, celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity. It’s about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

It is a day for all Australians to embrace cultural diversity and to share what we have in common.

The central message for Harmony Day is that ‘everyone belongs’, reinforcing the importance of inclusiveness to all Australians.
