Refugee Camp in My Neighbourhood

Cumberland City Council considers the health and wellbeing of the community a priority.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and direction from various levels of government, Council will be suspending the 2020 Refugee Camp In My Neighbourhood in order to help contain the spread of coronavirus and keep you safe.

To stay informed about the project, subscribe to a quarterly Refugee Camp in my Neighbourhood e-newsletter here.

Refugee Camp in My Neighbourhood is a simulated refugee journey set up for a few weeks each year in the grounds of Auburn Centre for Community. Tour guides, who are former refugees or currently seeking asylum, guide participants through the interactive exhibition. Throughout the tour you’ll discover the stories and experiences of many local residents as you experience what it’s like to flee your country and try to find safety.
