A Multicultural Australia
The Australian Community is uniquely diverse. Since the Second World War over seven million migrants have settled in Australia. Today, Australians speak more than 260 languages and identify with over 270 ancestries.
The diversity of the Australian population brings us important economic and cultural benefits, and has given us a greater understanding of the globalised world.
The Government's multicultural policy, The People of Australia, recognises the breadth of our diversity and builds on our strong commitment to Multiculturalism in Australia.
