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).
