Multicultural affairs

Learn how we continue to sustain our national unity in cultural diversity

All Australians share the benefits and responsibilities arising from the cultural, linguistic and religious diversity of our society.

Australia’s approach to multicultural affairs is a unique model based on integration and social cohesion.

The Government is bringing Australians together through programs that embrace Australia’s multicultural diversity and help all communities become actively part of, and benefit from, Australia’s economic and social development.
