This Saturday is the National Mosque Open Day in Australia. On this day, participating mosques across the nation will open their doors to welcome the public to explore their local mosque.
It is a great opportunity to meet people from the local Muslim community, ask questions and be welcomed. Australia is a generous place where different cultures and religions co-exist, and the National Mosque Open Day reflects such a spirit that all Australians are welcome.
There are approximately 604,244 people in Australia who identified as Muslim in the 2016 Census (Australian Bureau of Statistics). If you want to learn about the Muslim culture and ask any questions you have, find a participating mosque in your local area and pop in this Saturday!
Here is a map of the participating mosques with their addresses across the country:
