Adelaide's Biggest Multicultural Deepavali Carnival 2017

The Indian Festival of Lights is the most widely celebrated festival of the people from the Indian sub-continent and across the whole world. Deepavali means rows of lights; it is the festival symbolising victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance.

Though there are many mythological explanations to this wonderful festival, in the current world what the festival of lights really stands for is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friendship, religious tolerance, spreading the word of peace and harmony and above all, celebration of “simple joys of life”.

The Hindu Council of Australia, a national body representing all Australian Hindus (over 300,000), has been celebrating this festival of lights for the past 15 years on a large scale across Australia.
