Amid strains in Indo-Australia ties due to a spate of attacks on Indian students, a city in Queensland has launched a 'harmony' website aimed at telling 'a lot of great stories' about the bilateral relations and facilitating people of the two countries to share their experiences.

The Aussie-India Harmony website has been established by Ipswich in conjunction with Indian IT services company Dhanush InfoTech, which recently set up its regional headquarters in the city suburb of Springfield, southwest of Brisbane.

People of both nations could use the Aussie-India Harmony forum as a platform to voice their feelings through posting good and positive comments and shared experiences, Ipswich Mayer Paul Pisasale said.

Negative events involving Indians have overshadowed the many positive personal and business relations between the two countries, he said, referring to the attacks on Indians in Australia. "This (the website) is about making sure we tell a lot of great stories of Australia-India relations," Pisasale said.
