On June 23, 2012 at 1pm, 350 Novocastrians took part in the inaugural Walk Together event beginning at Central Promenade Newcastle and ending at the Newcastle Maritime Centre in Honeysuckle, with a small festival celebrating the diverse cultures that make up the Australian experience.
Walk Together also took place in 10 capital cities and several regional cities around the nation and was a very successful day, with over 10,000 people in attendance across the nation.
Walk Together Newcastle was a celebration of all that diversity adds to our society, culture
and community as we recognised that we have all walked different paths to become part of
the combined Australian journey.
It gave everyone in the community—long-term Australians, Indigenous Australians, refugees, migrants, international students and all other Australian citizens—the chance to welcome the latest arrivals to our community and to demonstrate our support for its beautiful multicultural reality.
