This event will be part of the International Refugee Week events which take place around Australia and the world. The message of Refugee Week is “with courage lets us all combine”. It is a day to celebrate the contribution, diversity, strength and value Refugee’s past and present have made to Australia – a day of respect for those who have come to call Australia home.
