Celebrating the cultures of two island communities from the Indian Ocean.

This special one-day event showcased the surprisingly diverse cultures of the Mauritian and Rodriguan people, which reflect French, Asian, African and British influences. Visitors enoyed cultural riches of Melbourne's vibrant community from the tiny Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius and Rodrigues through music and dance performances, cultural displays and island foods.
