Celebrate Sydney’s diversity


Sydney’s population is continuously on the increase, and so is our diversity

The Western Sydney Parklands Food Fest is on again this Saturday, September 9th and helps to celebrate our wide range of cultures.

The free community event, now in its sixth year, celebrates Sydney’s vast array of cultures and  will include 50 food stalls- ranging from Italian to Vietnamese, Egyptian and Lebanese.

The City of Sydney’s language statistics show that nearly 40 per cent of Sydneysiders speak a non-English language at home.

Arabic, which dominates the western suburbs, is the most widely spoken non-English language in Sydney, closely followed by Mandarin and Cantonese. Other languages such as Turkish, Korean, Persian, Spanish, Greek and Italian are also amongst the top languages spoken.

Here at Norwest Medical Imaging we recognise the multicultural diversity of Sydney and provide multilingual staff to help assist in translation both at the front desk and for medical imaging examinations.
