WELCOME TO THE NIGERIA COMMUNITY IN TASMANIA

Fostering Cooperation

The Nigerian Community in Tasmania is keen to keep you up to date about news of our community. Let us know if there is any information you wish to circulate.

The Nigerian community in Tasmania has gone the miles to this day. Commencing in 2004, there was a small group of Nigerians that met annually during the Christmas time, hosted by Dr Enoch and Bunmi Aduli in Hobart. Gabriel and Diana Ojeah were one of the other earliest Nigerians in Hobart then. As from 2009, the group resumed meeting during Easters and caught ferry rides to Bruny Island for family picnics which included playing soccer (parents versus kids). A surge in immigration of Nigerian families into Tasmania boosted our numbers between 2007-2011.
