Multiculturalism

The Northern Territory (NT) is one of Australia’s most culturally diverse places. There are over 100 nationalities and around 50 social, cultural and religious organisations.

Immigrants have contributed enormously to the NT’s economy and culture, in particular Greek and Asian immigrants.

You can attend cultural festivals organised by the Greek, Indian and other communities. Chinese New Year is celebrated.

Religious freedom and mutual respect are an integral part of the NT’s shared culture. There are Islamic mosques, Buddhist and Chinese temples and a range of Christian churches.
