We are the Dawoodi Bohra community of Adelaide
The Dawoodi Bohra Community in Adelaide is one among seven communities spread out across Australia and New Zealand. Totalling 39 families, the community predominantly hails from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the regions of East Africa as well as Southeast Asia.
Dawoodi Bohras began settling in Adelaide around the 1980s, attracted by its affordable cost of living and reputed educational institutions. Adelaide is renowned as a cultural hub with a strong multi-cultural ethos and a thriving local industry, which offers many opportunities for growth. Part of the city’s appeal is the balance it offers between busy urban life and the relaxed pace of a rural town.
Now, more than 30 years onwards, the city is host to a thriving community of Bohras who continue to benefit from its vibrant milieu and actively contribute to the development of its local communities and neighbourhoods.
