‘Refugees’ describes the situation of people, but it doesn’t define who they are. Australia has many different refugee communities. Whether you are looking to learn more about refugees, you have a friend from that community, or you are teaching refugees and/or other students, the wealth of resources on the Refugee Council of Australia’s website is there for you.
