Australian Harmony Day was celebrated at Admiralty House, Kirribilli, Sydney on 21 March 2017.  Its a day where Australians celebrate the strength our country gains from our cultural diversity.

Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove, wife of the Australian Governor General invited prominent women in the community from different backgrounds to sit together over lunch to learn and build friendships.

“On Harmony Day, it’s fitting that we come together around a table we all share, we all belong at, and we can all call our own,” Lady Cosgrove said.

The event coincided with the Open Heart, Open Home initiative of Mahboba’s Promise and the invited guests included the Pakistani Ambassador to Australia, Her Excellency Naela Chohan, Madinia Abdur Rahman, Mehboba Rawi and Dr Parwin Faiz amongst others, some in their colourful cultural dresses.
