Indonesian culture is as rich as any in Asia.


Sydney's Living in Harmony Festival coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which is held 21 March. It also coincides with New South Wales' Multicultural Month of March which aims to promote, celebrate, and strengthen multiculturalism in the state, inspired by the Diverse Australia Program of the Federal Government.

A cultural dance is always a colourful reflection of the grace and gait of the people of a culture.


Every weekend of March in Sydney is loaded with heaps of fun, gourmet food, and diverse colours, costumes, and custom. You are certain to get a fill of different cultures, different peoples, and a myriad of activities, events and exhibitions that promote diversity and harmony.

Mardi Gras, the biggest celebration that promotes acceptance of the LGBTQI community, will be happening this weekend. What better way to start March than with a blast? Click here for details. Mardi Gras is back-to-back with the Anatolian Turkish Festival. I am pretty sure you'd know a person of Turkish origin in one way or another, and this is a good chance to get to know the culture better. Click here for details.

Thailand Grand Festival brings you one of the best Asian cultures. Learn why the Thai massage is different, or watch a demonstration of Thai Kick-boxing. Thai food is certainly hot too! The Thailand Grand Festival will happen on 8-9 March 2014. Click here for details.

Love that Indian food? Have your fill plus a lot more at the Holi Mahotsav Festival of Friendship and Harmony which is happening on 21-23 March 2014. Click here for details.
