Refugee Welcome Zone

In August 2014 City of Adelaide declared the City of Adelaide a Refugee Welcome Zone.

City of Adelaide welcomes refugees and asylum seekers to the City and acknowledges the difficult journey men, women and children make to Australia to seek our protection.

We also celebrate the wonderful cultural diversity that refugees and asylum seekers bring to our community and the tremendous contributions refugees have made to Australian society in the fields of medicine, science, engineering, sport, education and the arts. 

Refugee Welcome Zones are an initiative of the Refugee Council of Australia.

Watch our video below to learn more about the City of Adelaide as a Refugee Welcome Zone.

Refugee Week

Refugee Week is Australia's annual campaign to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions they make to Australian society.

Refugee Week Events

A range of free activities take place across the city every year to celebrate Refugee Week during June.
