Multicultural day celebrates diversity

IPSWICH has extended a special welcome to those who have decided to come from far afield to call the city home.

The annual Welcome to Ipswich celebrations on Saturday provided an opportunity for the community to say g'day to our new residents.

It featured a handful of multicultural performances, ranging from a traditional Indigenous performance and smoking ceremony, to school bands and a drumming circle.

The Queens Park event provides an opportunity for local community groups and government services to provide information and connect with migrant families, offering support as they settle into their new home.

"Ipswich is a community made richer by the coming together of people from hundreds of ethnic and cultural backgrounds," Mayor Paul Pisasale said.
