“From the Tweed in the North, South to Albury and West past Dubbo, we’re investing in grassroots festivals and events to help locals celebrate and share their culture,” the NSW Minister for Multiculturalism, Steve Kamper, said. 

“It doesn’t matter where you live or visit in NSW, there’s an opportunity to enjoy the many vibrant cultures of the diverse people that make up this great state.”
