Kurdish Australians refers to Australians of Kurdish origin or descent. Approximately 10,000 people in the Australia claim to be of Kurdish ancestry according to 2016 Census by Australian Bureau of Statistics. Nearly 6,200 people in Australia claim to be speaking Kurdish at home in the same Census data.


In Australia, Kurdish migrants first arrived in the second half of the 1960s, mainly from Turkey.[1] In the late 1970s families from Syria and Lebanon were also present in Australia.[1] Since the second half of the 1980s, the majority of Kurds arriving in Australia have been from Iraq and Iran; many of them were accepted under the Humanitarian Programme.[1] However, Kurds from Lebanon, Armenia and Georgia have also migrated to Australia.


The majority live in SydneyandMelbourne.[1] In Sydney, they are mainly found in the suburbs of Auburn, Lakemba, Lidcombe, Bankstown, Punchbowl and the surrounds, which are suburbs in the LGA areas of Cumberland Council and Canterbury-Bankstown Council.
