Our History


The Aoraki Multicultural Council was formed in May 2004, as an initiative to raise funds for the Tsunami in South East Asia.
Following on, we became a member of NZFEC – Zealand Federation of Ethnic Councils (now New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils).

We now have members from 70 different cultural backgrounds involved in the council.
