The International Monument sits it Crescent Park, in the western suburb of Fairfield. The Fairfield National Society, which created the monument, was formed in 1968 by migrants from 16 nations. The group which later became the Fairfield Multicultural Society, were committed to a harmonious and coherent society, proud to be Australian yet enthusiastic to share and embrace cultural difference. Today is Harmony Day, part of the Diverse Australia Program that celebrates the cohesive and inclusive nature of Australia and promotes the benefits of cultural diversity. It is celebrated annually on the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
