Can’t wait? Head to for a sneak peek.

StandBy & Wellways

StandBy is a national suicide postvention service that provides practical support to anyone who has been bereaved or impacted by suicide, at any stage in their life. This includes individuals, families, friends, witnesses, first responders, service providers, groups and communities.

This service is delivered by Wellways in five regions throughout Victoria, NSW and the ACT and is offered free of charge at a time and place that best suits those requesting support.

Support is person centred and available as one-on-one sessions for individuals or group sessions for families, community groups, schools or workplaces. Support can be ongoing for up to 2 years.

Australian Colombian Friendship Association (ACFA)

Oblea is a dessert typical of Colombia and other Latin American countries. Obleas are thin and crispy wafers characterised by their round shape and a slightly brown colour. They are spread with Arequipe, the Colombian milk caramel sauce and a variety of toppings such as choc-chips, marshmallow, and mini salted pretzels.

We will love to share our traditional flavours, happiness, and love to the Harmony Day Festival.

African Community Council

Kofi and the team from the African Community Council will have drinks and food available, as well as information about their activities in the community.

Kofi will also be spinning some amazing African tunes, so bring those dancing shoes.
