It’s much better when you live in harmony

THE Harmony Day message is that everyone belongs, and groups across the Fraser Coast and Australia came together to show how much they believe in that message.

It's a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home, of jazz singer Helen Charman joining indigenous artist Les Raveneau in performing at Pialba's Fraser Coast Cultural Centre.

On Sunday, Harmony Day at Scarness meant celebrations at a special Hervey Bay Arts Council festival.

Event organiser Evelyne Grenfell said all performers were from the Fraser Coast.

She said their backgrounds showed more than the diversity of the region - they showed also that here everyone belongs.

"It was just a great day," she said.
