We will visit the Islamic Museum of Australia in Thornbury. The Islamic Museum of Australia (IMA) provides educational and cross-cultural experiences and showcases the artistic and cultural heritage of Muslims in Australia and abroad. Through the five permanent galleries — Islamic Faith, Islamic Contributions to Civilisation, Art, Architecture and Australian Muslim History — the museum fosters a more nuanced and realistic understanding of what it means to be an Australian Muslim.

The second stop will be Gurudwara Sahib in Cragieburn. This is the center of the local Sikh community, spreading the values of sikhism and fulfilling the religious needs of the community. People from a radius of around 35Kms come here every Sunday and Wednesday, for the Diwans (Prayers). This Gurudwara Sahib offers some free facilities to the public, such as the Use of kitchen, Van for Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, and Rooms for stay. This Gurudawara was designed keeping in mind the Traditional design and structure of the Indian Historical Gurudawaras which will be prominent in the special design of the Gurudawara Building.
