Muswellbrook residents throw their support behind Harmony Day

THE Muswellbrook community celebrated cultural diversity in a big way at the town’s Indoor Sports Centre on Saturday.

BHP Billiton, Upper Hunter Community Services, Hope City Church, NSW Government and the Muswellbrook Multi-Cultural Group joined together, along with many residents, to acknowledge Harmony Day.

The afternoon showcased a number of nationalities, including Indonesia, Thailand, India, Japan and The Philippines, while there were plenty of Aboriginal interactive activities.

Cooking demonstrations and tantalising food from around the globe made sure every taste bud was catered for, too.   

The theme of Harmony Day in 2018 is “Everyone Belongs”.
