About Multicultural Australia

We create welcome and build communities where everyone belongs. As Queensland’s leading humanitarian settlement provider, our clients and communities are at the heart of everything we do, and we are passionate about providing care and service that meets the direct needs of individuals and communities.

We have welcomed tens of thousands of individuals from refugee, asylum seeker, international student, and migrant backgrounds in Queensland – with the goal of creating a more equitable and prosperous society.

We help new Queenslanders settle into their new lives, build connections in their communities, find work and study opportunities, learn new skills and to feel at home. We also work with individuals, communities, business, and government to contribute to building a more welcoming Queensland through advocacy, cultural training, and community events.

The Executive team is responsible for achieving our strategic goals and making sure that we are operationally sound. The Executive team, which answers directly to the CEO, offers high-level guidance on important strategic and operational issues and supports the timely, coordinated, and cooperative implementation of Board decisions.

Help us help your local communities

We who have come from many places acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land which always was and always will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island land. We pay our respects to their Elders throughout all time. We walk together in solidarity of the pain of the past and the shared hope for the future.
