About Multicultural Australia   

Multicultural Australia emerged from a community-based social movement to advance multiculturalism and build communities where everyone belongs. Since 1998, we have welcomed tens of thousands of individuals from refugee, asylum seeker, international student, and migrant backgrounds – with the goal of creating a more equitable and prosperous society.

Today, we are a multicultural for-purpose organisation and settlement provider with a strong and connected physical presence across metropolitan and regional Queensland. Our clients and community are at the heart of everything we do, and we are passionate about providing care and services in person-centred and compassionate ways.

We work with individuals, communities, businesses and government to help build a more welcoming Queensland through advocacy, cultural training, community events, employment, youth programs, sports, and arts inclusion programs to advance a diverse, inclusive and multicultural community.
