They can find out more about Council services and get to know their neighbours and the local community.

Wall of Global Friendships

The idea of a Wall of Global Friendships came from the community as a unique way to recognise Casey’s cultural diversity. It features several plaques contributed by our multicultural communities of Casey. Each plaque at the Wall bears a message of friendship and goodwill. It's a symbol of a vibrant and diverse city.

The Wall of Global Friendships aims to:

  • Celebrate and acknowledge Casey’s diversity and friendship/sister city relationships.
  • Recognise the contribution of 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 inclusiveness and global friendship.
  • Provide a meeting place for multicultural ceremonies, special occasions and national events.

The Wall of Global Friendships is at the back of the Balla Balla Community Centre.

If your community group would like to take part, you can complete an Expression of Interest (EOI). Submit the completed form by email to adminactivecomm@casey.vic.gov.au.
