Gympie Regional Council and Community Action Inc are hosting a celebration of Australian multiculturalism featuring traditions and entertainment from around the world.
It promises to be a wonderful day of fun, traditional food, relaxation and networking.
The day will promote inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone who calls Australia home.
Australia identifies with approximately 300 ancestries and since 1945, around 7.2 million people have migrated here for a new life.
In fact 45% of Australians are either born overseas or have a parent who was.
The message of Harmony Day is Everyone Belongs and since its inception in 1999 it has been celebrated with over 55,000 events.
