Refugee Communities

The City of Wollongong welcomes refugees.

We have many residents who first came to Wollongong as refugees, and we continue to welcome more people seeking refuge from around the world every year.

Refugees contribute to the cultural richness of our city.

We support our local refugee communities through community-based education programs and Refugee Week activities.
