Divercity celebrates the many ways that our community welcomes newcomers to our glorious city by the bay.
We look at how Port Phillip’s Australia Day included both a homage our first nations people and a heartfelt welcome to people receiving the Australian citizenship from 42 different countries.
We also drop into a first-time parents group to see how our newest citizens and their carers are progressing. We look too at the great range of clubs, both social and sporting, that welcome new participants – crocket anyone, or will it be cricket? Plus we give a shout out to the volunteer Waterfront Welcomers that greet cruise ship passengers and crew as they disembark at Station Pier.
Add to this, four pages of events, many free or low cost, that invite you to join in the fun, education and entertainment that locals love. So much to do, so little time.
There’s also information about ways the Port Phillip people are reaching out to those affected by the bushfires in East Gippsland and North East Victoria.
