Started in 1999, to coincide with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, it's marked by people coming together and participating in local activities.

Schools, pre-schools and child care facilities hold all sorts of Harmony Day activities and children are encouraged to wear orange clothing and/or the distinctive orange ribbon.

The theme for Harmony Day 2016 is "our diversity is our strength" Australia's cultural diversity inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging.
National playgroup week
Support playgroups all over the country
Playgroups have been around for half a century, providing an extremely valuable, low cost, community-based resource for parents and young children to meet, play and socialise in a familiar and friendly setting.

This year National Playgroup Week will be officially held from 19th of March to 25th of March 2016 and most states will be running events, such as World's Biggest Playgroup Day.

Playgroups are volunteer-led organisations that provide informal, regular playtime sessions where mums, dads, grandparents, caregivers, children and babies can meet together in a relaxed environment.
