Multicultural Queensland Month

Multicultural Queensland Month

Let's all celebrate diversity during Multicultural Queensland Month! We are a state of many cultures and languages; almost a quarter of Queenslanders are born overseas, and many of us have at least one parent born in a country other than Australia. Let's embrace the culture, skills, experiences, and stories that make Queensland so diverse. 

We have created this event calendar for you to immerse in the wonders of multiculturalism.
