So what's up around the world in June - take a look
Australia is a community of multicultural aspects. We are comprised of community members from around the world coming together in the melting pot which is uniquely Australian.

We love celebrations so much so that we will celebrate many events even if they are not part of our own personal community or cultural heritage.

Even if we choose not to celebrate these events we often like to know about them and to understand the cultures of other people who make up our neighborhood.
