Around 42% of Australia's population was born overseas or has at least one parent born overseas. Western Australia is Australia's most culturally diverse state. These new settlers have contributed greatly to Australian society, often in the face of major difficulties. The combined goodwill of all has been crucial in the evolution of this harmonious society.
The Australian multiculturalism is a term which recognizes and celebrates Australia's cultural diversity. It accepts and respects the right of all Australians to express and share their individual cultural heritage. It is built on core societal values of mutual respect, tolerance and harmony, the rule of law and Australian democratic principles and institutions.
An estimated 150,000 Serbs live in Australia nowadays, about 14,500 of them in Western Australia (most of them in Perth).
The Serbian community's focal point is the Serbian Orthodox Church.
His Holiness Orthodox Archbishop of Pec, Metropolitan of Belgrade and Karlovci and Serbian Patriarch Iriney, is the spiritual leader of the Serbian people and Serbian Orthodox Church.
Regular services is held every Sunday from 10:00am.
