The Wall of Global Friendships is a celebration of Casey’s cultural diversity and global friendships. It is located at the Balla Balla Community Centre in Cranbourne East and features a collection of inscribed plaques from some of the cultural/ethnic groups that have settled in the City of Casey, local community organisations committed to cultural diversity and Casey’s sister cities.
This inspirational area is provided for the community to explore, interact and celebrate Casey’s cultural diversity. The landscape incorporates walls bearing messages of friendship and goodwill with gardens, paths, seating and flagpoles. Each plaque at the Wall of Global Friendships bears a message of friendship and goodwill and is a unique representation of a vibrant and diverse city.

Why was the wall created?
The concept of a Wall of Global Friendships came from within the local community as a unique way to recognise Casey’s cultural diversity.
The Wall of Global Friendships aims to:
- Celebrate and acknowledge Casey’s cultural diversity and friendship/sister city relationships.
- Recognise the contribution of the various cultural/ethnic communities that have settled in Casey.
- Promote friendship and goodwill between Casey’s diverse cultural groups.
- Recognise community organisations committed to cultural diversity and global friendship.
- Provide a meeting place for multicultural ceremonies, special occasions and national events.
How can the community be involved?
Community groups and organisations can contribute a plaque to the Wall of Global Friendships. There are two types of plaques:
1. Cultural community plaques
Multicultural groups are invited to contribute a plaque representing the people of their cultural or ethnic community who now call the City of Casey their home. These plaques represent a wider cultural/ethnic community in Casey and reflect cultural identity.
2. Community organisation plaques
Eligible community organisations can contribute a plaque on behalf of their organisation to demonstrate a commitment to cultural diversity and global friendship.
