DAYS TO GO

COLOURS OF MALAYSIA 2021

To love Malaysia
is to know Malaysia!

What better way for Malaysians to contribute to our home away from home, than introducing our country of origin to the heart of Melbourne.

In collaboration with the City of Melbourne and the Consulate General of Malaysia in Melbourne, Colours of Malaysia 2021 (CoM 2021) aims to increase awareness, foster appreciation, and generate excitement about Malaysia in the form of a festival where history, people, language, and culture are presented to both Australian and international communities.

As part of the corporate social responsibility, CoM 2021 will also introduce established Malaysian businesses to the local Victorian community by showcasing, promoting, and networking with the local community.

Colours of Malaysia would also like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsor! Without helping hands, Colours of Malaysia wouldn’t have been painted so beautifully.

Thinking of moving away from the city but not sure where to begin? Underbank Bacchus Marsh is here to assist everyone with a range of existing natural assets that can be reinvigorated and incorporated into the new masterplan environment, enhancing the natural setting for residents, unlike many other developments.
