Cultural diversity

Glenorchy is rich in its cultural diversity with many different cultural groups calling this city home. We support and celebrate multiculturalism through a range of programs and activities. 

Moonah Taste of the World Festival

The Moonah Taste of the World Festival is a vibrant annual celebration of multicultural Moonah and southern Tasmania. The festival offers patrons an opportunity to experience an authentic celebration of diverse world cultures through food, music, arts and culture.

More information about the festival is on the Moonah Taste of the World website.

Multicultural Community Spaces Plan

The Multicultural Spaces Plan (PDF) help identify solutions to meet the varying needs of multicultural groups for spaces and facilities in Glenorchy that support cultural activities. The development of a Multicultural Hub in Moonah, launched in November 2017, is a significant outcome of the plan.
