Edelweiss Casey Choir has celebrated Australia Day, using it to unite diverse communities in Lysterfield Park.

People of various backgrounds joined the celebration, enjoying picnics under the eucalyptus trees and engaging in spirited conversations.

The park buzzed with cultural performances, interactive games and activities, riddle-solving competitions, and a tug of war.

The highlight of the day was the ‘walking with a tennis ball on a table tennis bat’ competition, where participants demonstrated agility and precision in balancing the ball as they navigated through an obstacle course of challenges.

Cheers erupted from the crowd as participants showcased their skills, fostering an atmosphere of encouragement and support.

Chairman of the choir Emily Hu said the Australia Day celebration served as a melting pot of traditions, fostering cross-cultural exchange and appreciation.

“We extend heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to the event’s success,” she said.

“Together, we stand as guardians of a tradition that celebrates diversity, fosters inclusion, and honours the shared journey of belonging to this great land down under.

“Until next year, may the spirit of Australia Day continue to unite us in joy, harmony, and mutual respect.”
