There are 119 children in detention on Nauru not allowed to leave this tiny island the size of Melbourne Airport. We call on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten – Australia’s Political Leaders, to free the 119 children trapped on Nauru by Universal Children’s Day.

National Unity Week

We are putting welcome in your hands! National Unity Week will take place from 20 – 27 October, and we’re inviting the entire nation to get involved.

Visit  www.walktogether.com.au or email eilish@welcometoaustralia.org.au for more information.


Cultivating a culture of welcome is about much more than opening your own heart and mind. At Welcome to Australia, we’re about mobilising volunteers to engage in practical acts of welcome to encourage us all to leave our prejudices behind and replace them with a spirit of compassion.
