Queenscliff RAR is a community group active on the Bellarine Peninsula and in the Geelong region in Victoria.

  • We are part of the wider RAR (Rural Australians for Refugees) grass-roots movement across Australia.
  • RAR involves voters of all persuasions working solely for a more humane and welcoming policy towards asylum seekers and refugees.
  • We offer friendship, support & advocacy to asylum seekers & refugees who have been held in mainland or offshore immigration detention, including those returned to their homelands.
  • We provide support to their families living in precarious circumstances overseas, awaiting family reunion.
  • We lobby MPs for key refugee policy reform in accordance with Australia’s international human rights obligations as a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention.
  • We raise community awareness about issues affecting asylum seekers and refugees.
  • We raise funds to assist asylum seekers and refugees with legal representation; support; family reunion; and medical expenses.

Ongoing projects include:

  • ‘Support Packs’ of supplies to asylum seekers living in Geelong area; Conversation English; QRAR market stalls.
  • Email newsletters & updates are our primary form of communication between members.
