Refugee Welcome Zone

The City of Adelaide celebrates 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. 

In August 2014 the City of Adelaide was declared a Refugee Welcome Zone, welcoming refugees and asylum seekers and acknowledging the difficult journey men, women and children make to Australia to seek our protection.

Refugee Welcome Zones are an initiative of the Refugee Council of AustraliaWatch our video below to learn more about the City of Adelaide as a Refugee Welcome Zone.

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.
