Refugee Week is Australia’s peak annual activity to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society. Originally celebrated in 1986, Refugee Week coincides with World Refugee Day (20 June).

Refugee Week 2019 runs from 16-22 June, and is celebrating the theme "a world of stories" - encouraging all Australians to share a meal and listen to the stories of journeys forged by those who have travelled here from places all over the world.
