For up to four years my wife and i were a part of the “Pacific Unity”organizing committee, being apart of such an important event from its conception is a great thing to look back on with a great deal of satisfaction, being happy at the people you have met along the way and the work you have completed during that time.

Pacific Unity is a community event, truely a community event, where in the community at large gives in kind; their talents, time and envolvement!

If you can get to it? – do it! – you will have a great day and be part of what is becoming Sydney’s most prominent pacific islander event!


Following from the success of the past 4 years, the Pacific Unity Festival is back on for 2007! A day that features food and culture of the South Pacific and popular played sports will be on show to the community, as Pacific Unity Festival returns to Tempe Reserve in Sydney, on Saturday, November 3rd.

The Pacific Unity Festival is a gathering of South Pacific communities and the general public in Sydney – celebrating together the multi-cultural diversity of Australia. The main aims of the day are to raise awareness of Pacific communities, their businesses, sport and the support services that are made available to help the community.

“Last year the festival attracted well over 10,000 people. So, for November 3 we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone, by asking the community to help spread the message and get friends, family and their neighbours to come down and celebrate with us in early November.

The event format this year brings together sport (netball, touch football tournaments), food, arts, community service stalls, live performances & this year we have added Tug Of War and a NRL coaching clinic to be held at a single venue.

Promoting the services and networks of the Pacific community will benefit people from all different backgrounds. Celebrating together at the Pacific Unity Festival is a fun and effective way of achieving many positive outcomes.
