Australia is teeming with migrants. After all, with the exception of Australia's indigenous people we all came from another place.

Despite that, there are small sections of our society and the media who feel uncomfortable with people from overseas. Just look at the frenzy of fear when another boatload of asylum seekers comes near the coast - it makes me cringe to be an Aussie.

But the cultural diversity of Australia is perhaps one of our biggest assets. We can experience food, dancing, art and music from cultures around the planet without even leaving our own homes.

Sometimes we need to remind ourselves and others how lucky we are.

Walk Together is an event sponsored by Welcome to Australia, a group whose goals are to develop a culture of welcome in our nation.

Meet at Parliament House


In Adelaide there will be a walk from Parliament House to Rymill Park in Adelaide's east parklands, where once again Fork on The Road will celebrate diversity in our food choices.

The walk starts at Parliament House at 1pm, and on reaching Rymill Park there will be guest speakers including Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood, with Dorinda Hafner acting as MC.

There will be performances from groups including the Kurdish Youth Society and the Association of Australian Tertiary Students from Afghanistan, and of course around 30 food trucks will be doing their very best to tempt you with new cuisines. After the crowd has walked about Adelaide I imagine that appetites will be healthy!

Fork on The Road has been very mobile to date, moving between Hindmarsh, Victoria, and Light Squares before detouring to the Festival Centre and Bowden Urban Village most recently.

Let's give indigenous Australians, migrants, refugeees, and our favourite food truck entourage a great welcome in Rymill Park on Saturday June 22. It's a great opportunity to celebrate and show that we care.

You can accept the invitation to join the walk on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter.

Find out more about which food truck will be attending at the Fork on The Road Facebook page or on Twitter.
