Cairns multicultural festival celebrates

Organized by the Cairns and Region Multicultural Association Inc (CARMA), this year's festival brought together more than 35 community groups from various cultural backgrounds, turning the park into a bustling hub of entertainment, activities, and flavours from around the world.

CARMA, established in March 2002, serves as the umbrella association for over 50 community groups in the Cairns region. Initially founded by Centacare Migrant Services to advocate for refugee arrivals in Cairns, CARMA now operates solely through the dedication of its 100% volunteer workforce.
