Kosovar Refugees
Australia Crest

The first contingent of Kosovar refugees arrived in Sydney on the evening of Friday, May 7th, 1999 aboard the Qantas City of Tamworth. The 410 are the vanguard of some 4,000 who will come to Australia. They were met by Prime Minister John Howard who said "We admire your courage. As you prepare to spend your first night under Australian skies, we extend our open arms in welcome."
